Panel 1: Developing a Successful CSR & Sustainability Strategy

Panel 2: What Are the Returns on Investment?

Businesses cannot focus solely on capital gains. Public frameworks have imposed a ‘comply or explain’ policy requiring boardrooms to take on social and environmental accountability. With new ways of ROI measurement such as the ‘triple bottom-line’ of ESG reporting, how would this impact businesses?

Panelists:
Richard Welford, Chairman, CSR Asia
Emily Chew, Managing Director, Global Head of ESG Research & Integration, Manulife Asset Management
Philippe Shah, Head of Indices, Asia-Pacific, Thomson Reuters

Moderator:
Dawn Tan, Channel NewsAsia, Presenter & Senior Producer
