After winning last year’s Asia Best Sustainability Report in the SME category for its sustainability report 2014, ADFIAP this year got a finalist certificate at the Asia Sustainability Reporting Awards (ASRA) 2016 for its entry sustainability report 2015 themed, “@The Forefront of Sustainability”. The awards ceremonies was held on November 28, 2016 in Singapore at the Eden Hall, the official residence of the British High Commissioner.
The event was attended by dignitaries from diverse fields including business, non-profit, embassies, trade associations, advocacy organisations and academics. Close to a hundred organizations from the Asia-Pacific region entered the 15-category awards administered by an independent panel of judges.
The category in which ADFIAP was honoured was for a small and medium enterprise (SME) which clearly demonstrated its understanding of the material topics, stakeholder importance and how it considers sustainability risks and opportunities to become a better business.
ADFIAP started publishing its sustainability report in 2008 using the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines. In 2014, ADFIAP has been included in the GRI’s organizational stakeholders (OS) list of 600 organizations from over 60 countries committed to advancing sustainability reporting (please see separate story and ADFIAP’s ‘pesonalized’ OS mark, https://www.adfiap.org/news/association-news/adfiap-gets-new-gri-organizational-stakeholder-mark-sr-2014-registered/.
