The Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX) has issued
a sustainability reporting guide for listed companies, following
calls from global investors and stakeholders for companies to
report on sustainability issues.

The aim of the guide is to promote a more
complete annual report, with companies integrating their financial
information with environmental and social risks and strengths.

SGX chief executive Magnus Bocker said the
sustainability reporting guide is the first step for listed
companies who are new to sustainability reporting.

“A few are already practising and reporting
fully on sustainability matters. Among them are even
award-winners because they see the need to adopt such reporting.
With time, more SGX companies will join the ranks of these with
international acclaim.”
