Strategy and Reporting Services
Earn the trust you seek through effective, transparent reporting. Protect the value in your business using communication with targeted audiences, focused on relevant issues. Make your reporting work for you. Sustainability reporting enables the reporting of environmental, social and governance information beyond the scope of traditional financial reporting. Most organisations may already know a little, such as reporting in safety and human resource management, environmental management or community investment.
It’s far from being a ‘feel-good’ factor in business! Those days are long gone. Wider ‘sustainability’ risks and opportunities are recognised the world over by CEOs.
Extra-financial (sometimes referred to as non-financial) information is increasingly used by investors to assess externalities which will be reflected in stock performance in the long term. Call us for an example, or two.
Experienced corporate reporters as well as first-timers seek our support. Many stick with us year after year to refine their reporting practices.

HOW WE HELP CLIENTS
This is the heart of effective sustainability management in business. And it does more than merely pop out a list of “priority issues”. For an efficient response to sustainability, our materiality assessment provides the focus on relevant issues. Without a materiality process, your strategy and reporting will not serve your business effectively.
Sustainability reporting enables the reporting of environmental, social and governance information beyond the scope of traditional financial reporting.
Risk and Resilience
Risk and resilience management includes identifying and assessing potentially disruptive events and changing conditions, planning for risks and opportunities posed by these long-term trends, and mitigating and/or adapting from the impacts of these stressors and shocks in an efficient manner.
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
We help companies identify how their operations and sustainability programs contribute to meeting the SDGs, as well as where future business opportunities related to the SDGs may exist across their operations and supply chain.
Companies that have grasped sustainability at the strategic level realise that being sustainable offers cost savings, business opportunities and helps the company ride out tough cycles in the economy through strengthening stakeholder relationships. We specialise in helping companies manage risk and realise business opportunities by taking a strategic approach to sustainability.
We offer pre-assurance services, to familiarise the organisation on the sustainability assurance frameworks and full internal and external assurance services.
Beyond basics: Hygiene & impact factors in sustainability reports
When the impacts of the pandemic first made waves through the global economy, many questioned if the momentum for sustainability will be put to a halt as societies and economies move into crisis survival mode and focus on rebuilding economies.
Charting materiality amongst Singapore’s sustainability reporters
Material issues, as defined by the Global Reporting Standards (GRI) are issues “that reflect a reporting organisation’s significant economic, environmental and social impacts”. The process that a company goes through in defining these issues (often termed a ‘materiality assessment’) will form the inevitable backbone of the reporting process for new reporters.
Start my next Sustainability Report now??
We thought hard before posting this – it sounds a bit like shameless business development when we advise businesses to start reporting early. And 10 months early, too?! But, allow me to forge ahead! The dust has barely settled on the last report and it’s time to begin planning the next. Why?
