Presented by Sustainable Development Committee of Austcham Hong Kong and Macau a seminar on Sustainability – A Panel Discussion on Reporting Formats.
Lunch Seminar | Wednesday 25 September 2013
The Hong Kong Stock Exchange recently published guidelines for listed companies to report on Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) factors. The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) provides a sustainability reporting framework which has been widely adopted by companies on a global basis, while the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) is pushing for a standard approach that integrates both financial and ESG factors into one report.
Confused? This luncheon will provide an opportunity to discuss the sustainability reporting landscape and provide perspectives from an academic, an industry aligned association and a practitioner in the field.
