2019 Hong Kong ESG Reporting Awards Receive Overwhelming Response
More than 70 entries received in 6 categories
HONG KONG, Aug, 13 2019 - (ACN Newswire) - Alaya Consulting is delighted to announce that the Hong Kong ESG Reporting Awards (HERA) 2019 have attracted a total of 71 submissions, up approximately 80% over the previous year.

Tony Wong, founder of Alaya Consulting, stated: "I would like to thank the participating companies. Their participation not only implies the growing focus on the quality of ESG disclosures, but also means the donation is getting bigger.

Angus Ho, executive director of Greeners Action, stated: "We are excited to see the number of submissions this year and are grateful for the contribution to our organisation. More stringent disclosure requirements are only a matter of time. Participating in HERA constitutes an ideal litmus test of the level of disclosure as this facilitates benchmarking with other industry leaders."
Inaugurated in 2018, HERA promotes ESG reporting in Greater China region. The 6 categories are Best ESG Report, Excellence in GRI Reporting, Excellence in ESG Reporting for Non-listed Companies, Excellence in Environmental Disclosure, Excellence in Social Disclosure and Innovative Front-runner.
