“Through a sustainability report, we can assess how far the company has contributed to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs),” said Ali Darwin, Chairman of NCSR, on the sidelines of the conference.
This is the 14th year award held by NCSR. The previous year we called it as the Sustainability Reporting Awards, said Prof. Eko Ganis Ph.D Chairman of ICSP, But starting this year we changed the system from the Award to Rating, continued Eko.
According to Ali Darwin, from now on, there are no longer the term of Winner, Runner-up 1, Runner-up 2 as in the reward system of previous years. Starting this year, the system has been changed to a Rating. And because the participants are not only from Indonesia, but also from other countries in Asia, the brand name is “Asia Sustainability Reporting Rating”, in short as Asia SR Rating, he said. This is the first sustainability report rating system in Asia.
The ranking in Asia SR Rating consist of 4 groups; Platinum (highest), Gold, Silver and Bronze (lowest).
This year, the report assessment process was carried out by 76 assessors, who are lecturers of various universities in Indonesia. They all have competence as assessors because they already have a Certificate Sustainability Reporting Specialist (CSRS) issued by NCSR.
The participants of Asia SR Rating this year that registered are from Indonesia 38 companies, Bangladesh 2 companies, Malaysia 6 companies, Singapore 5 companies and Philippines 5 companies.
It is expected that with this rating system, more companies will be interested in participating in the Asia SR Rating, especially if the results of this rating can be used by other agencies such as the Ministry of Environment and Forestry to assess the reliability of environmental aspects of a company.
The rating results also can be used by the Bank in assessing the extent to which a company’s environmental risks and social risks must be taken into account in providing credit, for example.
