Global Compact Network Singapore (formerly Singapore Compact for CSR) organised a 2-day conference on 25th and 26th August on “Evaluating and Evolving CSR: Creating Value for a Sustainable Future”. This year’s conference drew around 400 business professionals, CSR practitioners and stakeholders (including government officials, academics and civil society leaders) and featured panels addressing topics including sustainability reporting, moving from a “human resources” to “human capital” perspective, responsible sourcing, and responsible investing and financing, in addition to others.

Questions raised by the audience during the panels addressed issues like the stringency of Singapore Stock Exchange’s current standards for sustainability among listed companies; effective ways to convince senior leadership of corporations to invest in social responsibility measures; positioning of social responsibility initiatives in business models for practical and strategic purposes; and how to understand social responsibility in the context of retaining and developing a corporate’s human capital.

AVPN is a proud supporting partner of the Singapore CSR Summit. Check out our full listing of network events here.
