“The Asia Sustainability Reporting Awards creates a much needed platform for sharing best practices, benchmarking and peer learning by bringing together the leaders in sustainability reporting. The Awards also provide an excellent opportunity to organisations to showcase their sustainability excellence and build trust among their stakeholders.”
