Never before have Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risks been more on the minds of stakeholders and investors; the spotlight on corporate responsibility and sustainability shines brightly. Some of the country’s largest asset managers are urging companies to look beyond the immediate future and find ways to fully integrate sustainable practices into their bottom line.

 

As more companies have established reporting programs to meet these demands, sustainability reporting frameworks have gained traction over the last several years, the common frameworks used in China and Hong Kong S.A.R are:

  • HKEX ESG Reporting Guideline
  • GRI Standards
  • CASS 4.0
  • UN SDGs
  • ISO 26000
  • Integrated Reporting Framework
  • SASB Standards

 

Applying these frameworks can help your company identify risks and shape your narrative in a format that investors will appreciate. We support our clients in maximizing opportunities and managing risks related to ESG reporting and disclosure.
