On November 29, sustainability professionals will gather at the by-invitation only event. The 2nd Sustainability Reporting Conference will take stock of the developments happening as well as the track that this emerging practice is most likely to take as more Philippine companies adopt the practice of sustainability reporting.
Energy companies are noticeably at the forefront of this kind of corporate reporting. This trend in the Philippines seems to reflect the global reporting trend that saw a greater uptake among the financial, energy and utility companies (GRI, 2011). Judging from the recent sustainability reports that came out this year, it is the energy sector that has been leading the uptake.
What’s in store for the Philippines? This Sustainability Reporting Conference in the Philippines may well become the local barometer of sustainability reporting and related activities. More to follow on the 29th.
The Center for Social Responsibility of the University of Asia and the Pacific is the convenor of this special event.
