(Fully booked) BDO Webinar: ESG reporting performance survey sharing

Date: 02 February 2021
Time: 15:00 - 16:00


  • Summary

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors are continuing to gain traction in corporate reporting regimes and the financial institution sector from the standpoints of long-term sustainability and responsible investment. Users and investors are demanding an increasingly high quality of ESG information disclosed by listed companies in order to facilitate decisions about investment, interest and value alignment, business partnerships, and joint efforts to overcome global challenges.

This is the fourth survey conducted by BDO on the performance of ESG reporting among Hong Kong listed companies. The survey explores whether their ESG reporting performance has improved since last year, identifies 7 key findings, and makes 12 recommendations for listed companies to consider when preparing their ESG reports.

In this webinar, we shall:

  • share with you our key survey results and recommendations;
  • analyse listed companies' preparedness in fulfilling the new ESG disclosure requirements; and
  • share with you some best practices and examples.
