About the Course

Sustainability reporting is a listing requirement on many stock exchanges, and increasingly becoming a standard expectation.  But producing a report is only one part of the process, to do so companies are expected to have put some key steps in place in order to communicate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance to investors, customers, business partners & regulators.  Paia has been involved in over 150 sustainability reports and has successfully trained over 1,200 participants in sustainability reporting, many of whom have recommended colleagues for our future runs.  We successfully simplify the process, guiding you through step by step on the key requirements, giving practical examples of how to overcome potential hurdles in the process.  By the end of the day you will have a clear understanding of what is required and how to go about producing a report in line with SGX guidelines.

During the course we share case study examples, both local and global, and provide guidance on how to implement the guidelines in practice.  Our training is based on our depth of hands on expertise in producing award winning sustainability reports.

The course is relevant to companies that are considering reporting, either within the Annual Report, as a separate standalone Sustainability Report.
