Sustainability has become a critical success factor for companies to ensure long-term value creation, and there has been a growing demand among investors for enhanced transparency on listed companies’ Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices.
SGX is dedicated to our sustainability goals and we seek to ensure that our policies are well charted and adhered to. Our Sustainability Committee, supported by the Sustainability working groups, tracks and sets directions for our sustainability journey. The Committee is chaired by the Chief Financial Officer and supported by the Head of Investor Relations as the secretary. Members of the Committee include the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Regulatory Officer, Chief Risk Officer, Head of Human Resources and Head of Communications.
The committee meets quarterly to plan and review the progress of our sustainability efforts. Where necessary, discussions are escalated to senior management.
