Asia Sustainability Reporting Awards 2015 update

Newly launched Asia Sustainability Reporting Awards aspire to become the most inspiring recognition for sustainability reporting excellence in Asia. The 2015 edition of the Awards is open for entries now.
An independent panel of judges with distinguished backgrounds will judge the entries and decide the winners. The Awards are being offered in 14 categories including Asia’s Best Sustainability Report, Asia’s Best Integrated Report, Asia’s Best Sustainability Report (SME), Asia’s Best First Time Sustainability Report and other specialized categories with focus on carbon disclosure, stakeholders, supply chain, community and many more.
The Awards, an multi-stakeholder initiative by CSRWorks, Singapore’s leading sustainability advisory firm,  have already garnered considerable attention as well as support from diverse organisations; being the foremost and the only Asia-level awards for sustainability reporting.
CSRWorks explains their decision to create these regional Awards: “An increasing number of companies in Asia are embarking on sustainability reporting in line with global trends. Our aim is to encourage and promote sustainability disclosure by honouring those who have demonstrated leadership in sustainability reporting.”
According to CSRWorks, “the Asia Sustainability Reporting Awards will create a much needed platform for sharing best practices, bench marking and peer learning by bringing together the leaders in sustainability reporting. Moreover, the Awards will provide an excellent opportunity to organisations to showcase their sustainability excellence and build trust among their stakeholders. ”
Entries are welcome from all types of organisations from all sectors; all types of sustainability communication and disclosure will be accepted.
Early bird submissions end on 26th October 2015 and final submission deadline on 23rd November 2015. The winners will be announced in mid-January 2016 in an awards function in Singapore.
