AHKA Professional Forum: Translating ESG into sustainable business value
17 January 2017 (Tuesday)
An integration of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors into business agendas is no longer an option, but rather a necessity. The ESG Guide of [the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong] has been rearranged into two subject areas, Environmental and Social. General disclosure points under both subject areas have been upgraded to comply or explain for financial years beginning after January 1, 2017.
ESG is usually recognized as a report to improve a company's transparency and strengthen its risk management. Beyond financials, it is also seen as a function of Corporate Social Responsibility and brand building. Companies are facing increasing demand to recognize their responsibility to stakeholders and the society. Quality ESG disclosures and practices make perfect business sense from multiple perspectives. Companies can solidity their firm's reputation sustainability through ESG performances. Indeed, ESG Reporting is taken increasingly serious as it can affect assessments and decisions of stakeholders.
In the forum, we are going to cover the guidelines and practical skills in ESG Reporting with a view to assisting participants to enhance the market value of their companies through ESG Integration.
