IN ASSOCIATION WITH
With the growth of conscious consumption, it is said that over 66% of the customers consider sustainability when making a purchase. Being more responsible and sustainable has become a key USP for many brands and service providers. Having the right Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) strategy is one part and the other is measuring, reporting, and communicating the same with your stakeholders.
In addition, responsible investing is the trend followed by many large investors who want to consider both financial returns and social and environmental benefits in their investment decisions. This new investment approach recognizes the importance of ESG factors to the investor, as well as the long-term health and stability of the market as a whole.
ESG has quickly moved from the corporate and shareholder periphery to center stage, and the time for disclosure is now. Investor demand for ESG information has increased massively. Reporting on the company’s impact on society, the environment, and overall governance is becoming an inseparable part of the business.
Across the APAC region, there has been a significant increase in ESG data disclosures. This will be further bolstered by incoming mandatory TCFD-aligned climate reporting requirements in Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, and Taiwan, as well as global ESG standards currently in development. In this session, we will focus on ESG integration for long term business resilience and maintaining a robust risk management and controls.
