Survey on ESG Reporting of Hong Kong Listed Companies 2017 

The number of mandatory environmental, social and governance (ESG) reporting requirements worldwide has increased rapidly in recent years. It is clear that ESG issues are global market concerns.

Effective from 1 January 2016, every listed company in Hong Kong is required to disclose its ESG information on an annual basis.

To understand ESG reporting practices since the implementation of this regulation, BDO Hong Kong has conducted a desktop survey and reviewed the ESG disclosures of 300 companies listed on the Main Board.
