We are pleased to invite you to BSR's first event in Singapore. Join us for an interactive in-person discussion on impact-based materiality and the forthcoming global proposed disclosure requirements for companies.

Learn about the objectives and updated methodology of impact-based materiality, in which companies assess financially material topics that influence enterprise value as well as topics material to the economy, environment, and people. BSR will provide context on the driving forces behind the decisions to mandate impact-related disclosures and a high-level overview of the contents of the proposed rules globally. Michael Tang from SGX will also provide an overview of the current requirements for Singapore and how this may be impacted by these global developments. Joachim Goh from NVPC (National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre) will further share the latest developments on the Corporate Purpose movement.

Members of BSR's Singapore team will share perspectives and facilitate the discussion. This intimate breakfast event will offer a unique opportunity to meet and collaborate with other sustainability decision-makers and change agents in our community. This event is intended for sustainability, compliance, reporting practitioners, and all who are interested in these topics.
