GRI in ASEAN

Based in Singapore and established in 2019 with the help of a Consortium of 13 leading Singapore-based organizations operating across the region, the Hub covers Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam and Myanmar. It provides guidance and support to organizations as they progress on their sustainability journey to better communicate and improve sustainability performance.

The Hub liaises with ASEAN governments, capital markets, civil society and others to support and underpin high-quality sustainability reporting and ESG disclosure.

 

Who we work with

ASEAN Hub Consortium 

Our consortium is a diverse set of Singapore headquartered companies that help us raise GRI’s regional profile. We work with them to leverage their track record in sustainability reporting, to share best practices and provide learning opportunities.  

The consortium includes the Singapore Stock Exchange, CDL and CapitaLand (real estate and development), Sembcorp and Keppel (energy and utility), DBS (banking) StarHub (communications), consulting firms TCS, PwC, KPMG, and EY, as well as thought leadership organizations Stewardship Asia and Global Compact Network Singapore.
