Why Choose Paia?

We have practical experience. In less than a year since the Framework was released, we were engaged to work with four local organisations on related projects – the Singapore Exchange (SGX), City Developments Limited (CDL), Maritime Port Authority (MPA) and a local bank listed on the Straits Times Index. We also worked with many clients who are quietly embedding considerations.

We produce award-winning reports. MPA won the Singapore Apex CSR Award and two other awards based on their report. CDL’s report was shortlisted for prestigious global Ethical Corporation’s Best CR Report Award.

Frequently Asked Questions


Paia’s training is delivered by individuals who have unparalleled depth of hands on expertise in reporting locally. To note, GRI’s certified training does not require the trainer to have ever worked on a sustainability report. The GRI certified training is focused around communicating GRI’s Guidelines. The key difference to our training is that we focus on the practical application of those guidelines, based on our Singapore team’s experience of having worked on over 150 sustainability reports. Each of Paia’s lead trainers has personally worked on at least 25 sustainability reporting projects, so our training shares practical guidance on how to actually apply the guidelines in practice. Of SGX’s 24 Sustainability Leaders, 14 worked with Paia.

Please also note that our understanding is that GRI’s certified training leads to a certification of attendance. If attendees then want to become certified to GRI they must sit a separate exam with additional fees applicable.
