In today's business landscape, sustainability disclosures have become increasingly critical, driven by new legislation and heightened regulatory standards. According to the 2024 GlobeScan/ERM Sustainability Institute Leaders Survey, experts consistently highlight new legislation and sustainability disclosure standards as pivotal in advancing the sustainability agenda. These standards not only promote climate action and renewable initiatives but also enhance public awareness and financing for sustainability efforts.

Hong Kong is aligning with new global regulatory standards, including the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) standards. Staying ahead of these changes not only ensures compliance but also fosters innovation, protects investment streams, and enhances business reputation, particularly for listed companies.

Building on the foundational knowledge you gained from the ESG Reporting Certification Course, we encourage you to attend this session to understand why unlocking purpose and governance is the key to enhanced and sustained ESG performance.
