ASRA, a non-profit initiative, is organised by Singapore-based sustainability advisory firm CSRWorks International to recognise excellence in reporting.

Following a global trend, several stock exchanges in the region now require listed companies to produce an annual sustainability report, mainly to meet investors’ demand for non-financial disclosure. ASRA winners are setting a new benchmark in sustainability reporting excellence which in turn will inspire more companies to raise the bar.

“Companies’ win at ASRA reflects their leadership in managing long-term social, environmental and economic impacts, risks and opportunities for competitive advantage,” said Rajesh Chhabara, managing director at CSRWorks International.
