Sustainability reporting is a process that can assist a company to respond effectively to stakeholders whilst providing a platform to manage economic, environmental, social and governance performance.

Hong Kong listed companies would be subject to tougher environmental, social and governance (ESG) disclosure requirements as a result of the recent Listing Rules amendments. From 1 January 2016, listed issuers are required  to report on their environmental and social impacts. The purpose of the ESG reporting is to demonstrate the principles behind the sustainability strategies and inform the stakeholders of the ongoing activities to protect the environment and conserve energy.

Many CPA firms and consultancy companies are providing ESG or sustainability reporting services to listed companies to assist them in their compliance with the relevant ESG/sustainability reporting requirements.  However, it may also the case that, professional accountants, finance controllers, internal auditors, sustainability coordinators and corporate executives/officers working in listed companies, are expected to be familiar with the core requirements of Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting G4 Guidelines & its principles and the Hong Kong Stock Exchange ESG reporting requirements. This Programme is developed in response to this market demand.
