Within Asia Pacific, only a few companies practice integrated reporting. But listed companies in Hong Kong will be required to issue one or explain why they cannot by next year, while the Singapore stock exchange prepares to traverse the same path.
Vincent Liew is Global CFO at Aedas, a leading global architecture and design practice firm headquarterd in Hong Kong. Aedas is not listed, but Liew prepares an integrated report anyway because he believes stakeholders do not want only financial information. Investors, customers and employees also need to know how sustainable the company is and what its values are.
