IRPAS together with Tangelo Software conducted a webinar on “Trends, Developments and Best Practices in Financial and ESG Reporting” on 22nd July. The session focused on the findings and case studies from Tangelo’s most recent survey of Singapore’s largest companies – those listed in the FTSE Straits Times Index – and publication of the findings in their research paper ‘The State of Online Annual Reporting in Singapore’.
Tangelo’s survey, which was conducted in March/April 2020, used information in the FTSE Straits Times Index constituents’ FY 2020 annual reports with December year end or if not available, the FY 2019 annual reports. The report broke down the data and analysed the trends. Some findings include:
- when annual reports are published (SGX was the shortest with 62 days).
- 40% of companies researched included sustainability reporting in their annual report while the remaining
- 60% published a separate sustainability report.
- On average, the sustainability reports are 86 pages long.
