Singapore, 7 April: The Asia Sustainability Reporting Summit 2017 will be held in Singapore on 19 & 20 September.
The Asia Sustainability Reporting Summit is Asia’s first regional conference dedicated to sustainability reporting. The Summit creates a powerful platform for the reporting community to discuss new trends, techniques, common challenges, solutions and success stories.
The Summit’s theme – Sustainability Reporting for Competitive Advantage – explores practical ways for businesses to gain competitive edge through sustainability reporting excellence. Ability to create, share and communicate value is at the heart of making businesses future-fit.
The two-day event will bring together top business leaders, chief sustainability officers, sustainability reporting experts and practitioners, standards-setters, regulators and policy-makers and other key stakeholders from the region. Companies which produce Asia’s best sustainability reports will also be part of the speakers and attendee profile.
The Summit agenda includes all aspects of sustainability reporting and integrated reporting.
Rajesh Chhabara, Managing Director of CSRWorks, stated the need for a regional platform for businesses and other stakeholders to come together to have a meaningful conversation about reporting.
“We have a growing sustainability reporting community in Asia and the Summit offers them an exciting platform to learn, share and network with each other.”
“The Summit is a natural extension of our hugely popular Asia Sustainability Reporting Awards (ASRA). Many of the ASRA winners will be speaking at the Summit to share their expertise and views,” he added.
The Summit will be addressed by an impressive line-up of well-respected sustainability reporting leaders. See the full list of speakers here.
