Sustainability Reporting Diploma

January 2017

Trainer of the Sustainability Reporting Diploma Programme 2017

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

Since reporting on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues has become mandatory for stock listed companies in Hong Kong and other Asian countries, there is a growing need for skills development.

Addressing this demand, The Association of International Accountants (AIA) - Hong Kong Branch and CSI, jointly organised the second Sustainability Reporting Diploma Programme in 2017.

The programme was held in Hong Kong to familiarise accountants, finance controllers, internal auditors, sustainability coordinators and corporate executives with the core requirements of the most widely used sustainability reporting standards.

During 4 half-day sessions, the programme focused on the theoretical background of sustainable development, corporate social responsibility and sustainability reporting. Indicators were linked to practical examples giving participants insight into best-practices and the approach that companies take towards sustainability reporting practices.

CSI is proud to engage with the AIA HK Branch in educational activities and support participants in developing skills for sustainability reporting. We thank all participants for their contributions during the programme and congratulate on the successful completion of the course.

CSI will continue to support the AIA in this meaningful work and engage with education institutions and partners in Asia.
