Upcoming Sustainability Training Programmes

How to Write a Professional Sustainability Report

15-16 September 2015, Tuesday & Wednesday

Keeping in line with the regional and global trends, the Singapore Exchange (SGX) CEO announced in October 2014 that sustainability reporting would be mandatory for Singapore-listed companies in the near future. SGX had previously issued voluntary sustainability reporting guidelines in 2010-11. Several other exchanges in the region and around the world have either made sustainability reporting mandatory or are moving in that direction.
Leading global investors are increasingly taking into account a company’s social and environmental performance to make investment decisions. Sustainability disclosure increases a company’s credentials and opens up new sources of investment. Sustainability reporting also helps a company reduce business risks, improve efficiency and lower operational costs. Early adopters will also have an edge over their peers, will gain stakeholders’ respect and reap a number of benefits of embracing sustainability reporting.
Many organisations already practice Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in some form. However there are several gaps between their existing CSR approach and the globally accepted sustainability reporting guidelines such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 and IIRC’s Integrated Reporting guidelines.

This course is designed to help listed-companies in moving from traditional CSR to a strategic Sustainability Reporting in an easy Do-It-Yourself manner.

This training will be very useful to those in the following functions:
Senior executives responsible for CSR and Sustainability Reporting in their respective organisations.  Directors and managers from corporate affairs, corporate communications, investor relations, public relations, human resources, environmental health & safety and senior management.
