Sustainability reporting standards will be at the heart of our conversations at the Ecosperity Week 2023 dialogue. While the call of “harmonisation” of sustainability reporting standards has been heeded, the bar has certainly been raised as sustainability reporting standards continue to evolve. Standards development has moved at breakneck speed, and the attention is now on the Big 4 of the sustainability standards world: The ISSB, CSRD, SEC and the GRI.

As the business world continues to address wide-ranging environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues, there has been a strong focus on the development of globally consistent, comparable and trusted sustainability reporting standards.
Investors and broader stakeholders are increasingly demanding more strategic and holistic information about long-term value creation and companies’ wider impact on society. They have highlighted the need for sustainability (ESG or non-financial) information to be reported in a way that is globally consistent, comparable and trusted.
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) is more than ticking boxes. It’s about making a difference - for your business and our world. Creating sustained outcomes that drive value and fuel growth, whilst strengthening our environment and societies.
Our passionate community of solvers are ready to put in the work with you - environmentalists, sociologists, economists, strategists, technologists. Combining real world experience with a commitment to change. They’ll help you to turn theory into action. Business as usual into new ways of thinking and doing. People and technology working together to find solutions larger than today. Creating a transparently brighter future for generations to come.
It's time to turn theory into action. Aspiration into a tangible, practical plan. Using ESG as a guide, we can create strategies that get real results. Success is not about climate change, diversity and disclosures alone. It’s about embedding these principles- and more across your business- from investment to sustainable innovation. Bringing together your best people and smartest technology so you can see more, go deeper and act swiftly. Ready to take on the biggest challenges, with the ability to flex your priorities. Building greater resilience to stay ahead of vulnerabilities, whilst creating new opportunities to shift the expected.
You need to ready your business for the realities of tomorrow. From net zero to the circular economy, ESG is an approach that enables transformation to happen- so we can all take bold, innovative steps forward. We bring together an unexpected and dynamic combination of talent and technology- to drive your ESG strategy into the heart of your business. Helping you to make the operational, cultural and financial changes needed to deliver sustainable business advantage and long term value. Transforming from the inside, to transform the lives of your people, customers and your community.

We deliver a trusted approach using proven methodologies, to infuse ESG metrics throughout all areas of your business–for maximum transparency. Proactively proving your commitment– to all parties, internally and externally- with measurable success.

Our Asia Pacific Centre for Sustainability Excellence (CSE) will play a critical role in PwC’s ESG across the region, where we will focus on supporting organisations in areas such as:
Our Centre for Sustainability Excellence is supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board, and it will be powered from the city state to leverage the strong climate ambition underlined by the Singapore Green Plan 2030, the country’s close connectivity with the diverse economies across Asia Pacific, and its growing prominence as a regional sustainability hub.
It's time to take action. Creating impact through ESG means putting a tangible, practical plan in place. It should touch every part of every business - from investment to sustainable innovation. When fully embedded in your business from strategy to reporting, tax to legal, HR to M&A, you’re ready to mitigate potential ESG related risk as well as capture the right opportunities.
Responsibility. Sustainability. Diversity. These are the bywords of today’s businesses. But how can you be sure you measure up to them? Build a better, and transparently brighter future, earning greater trust for generations to come. Lead with proven approaches and smart technologies that infuse ESG principles throughout your business - from finance and tax to people and value chains.
The groundwork to deliver on our mission has already started, for example, with these developments in Singapore:
In support of the Singapore Green Plan 2030, we have launched the Singapore Low Carbon Network (SLCN), a platform that aims to bring together enterprises and organisations across Singapore with ambitions to decarbonise. The SLCN serves to facilitate dialogue and learning between both public and private sectors, and aims to advance the sharing of best practices and insights on key carbon measurement and decarbonisation topics based on the member organisations’ needs.
If you’re interested in joining the SLCN and would like to learn more about it, reach out to our contacts below.
In addition to welcoming new senior talent in growing our ESG leadership, we have kick-started our ESG upskilling programme for all 3,500 of our people, starting with our ESG Essentials curriculum to embed “ESG consciousness” in our DNA. This is part of our worldwide effort to upskill all our people in ESG knowledge. Supplementing the ESG Essentials is an eight-module ESG Upskilling Programme developed by our Sustainability and Climate Change practice for our partners and staff. Specialised training customised for the different lines of services will be subsequently rolled out as we continue to equip our people with further skills and knowledge to better help clients pivot towards a sustainable future by integrating ESG into their strategies, operations, and reporting.
Our strength as a global network enables us to tap into our regional and global resources, talent, insights and innovations to collectively problem solve. The CSE is a part of our US$12 billion global commitment under our global strategy, The New Equation, which focuses on bringing together unique combinations of people, powered by technology, to help organisations build trust with stakeholders and deliver sustained outcomes.
In October 2021, Enterprise Singapore launched the Enterprise Sustainability Programme (ESP) to support Singapore businesses on sustainability initiatives and to capture new opportunities in the green economy. In line with the CSE’s focus of upskilling and capacity building, we are one of the partners working with Enterprise Singapore under the ESP to develop and deliver subsidised training workshops. This will help enterprises to build greater awareness and knowledge of sustainability. More details of the workshops will be released at a later date.
While the world continues to battle the pressing ESG issues at hand, there has been an increasing call for the “harmonisation” of sustainability reporting standards for enhanced transparency from investors, regulators and other stakeholders.
