Geneva, Switzerland 15 October 2018: Today, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and the Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB) released a report detailing Singapore’s corporate sustainability reporting landscape, compared to patterns of reporting across other Southeast Asian countries.

Analyzing global and regional reporting can help gain insights on what characteristics are driving sustainability reporting practices and ultimately, the integration of sustainability in companies’ strategies and processes.  

Singapore is well-known for its green city programs and its government’s efforts to embed sustainable practices across different sectors. This new report shows how these trends are made clear when examining the country’s reporting provisions - which have doubled since 2010 and focus mainly on environment.

In the report launched today the Singapore Exchange (SGX) gives insights on SGX’s approach to advance the sustainability agenda in Singapore. She also discusses how reporting and disclosure are improving investor understanding and increasing confidence in the environmental, social and governance (ESG) information published by companies.

In addition, Olam shares their experience and insights on sustainability disclosure, focusing on how managing ESG risks and opportunities is vital for long-term competitiveness.
