GRI opens ASEAN Regional Hub in Singapore

A new GRI Regional Hub has officially opened in Singapore, to serve the 10 countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The office will support ASEAN companies with relevant services and training, helping them to identify, manage and report their most material environmental, social and governance (ESG) impacts. The Hub will also liaise with governments, capital markets, civil society and other stakeholders in the region.

Headed by Michele Lemmens, a business executive from Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), the Hub is co-located at the offices of Global Compact Network Singapore (GCNS), the Singapore chapter of the United Nations Global Compact.

 Tim Mohin, GRI chief executive, said: “Our ASEAN Hub has a crucial role working with companies in Southeast Asia to unlock the benefits of sustainability reporting. GRI’s experience around the world shows disclosure helps businesses improve performance, build relationships with global buyers and increase their reputation as responsible global citizens.”
