Advancing Climate Reporting in Singapore REITs: Strategies, Standards, and Stakeholder Engagement

The Singapore REITs industry, like all other sectors, is under increasing pressure from investors, tenants, regulators, and other stakeholders to report key ESG information. Given the evolving landscape of climate reporting, it’s crucial for REITs to grasp the latest disclosure standards and implement a robust climate reporting process for their businesses.

We’d like to invite you to join us at this webinar, where our Head of ESG, Tina Thomas, will discuss the current regulatory framework, explore the strategic benefits of transparent climate reporting, and examine the challenges REITs face in adapting to enhanced disclosure requirements.

Key areas of discussion will include:

  • Overview of Singapore’s climate reporting regulations affecting REITs, including SGX mandates.
  • How climate reporting influences investor relations, risk management, and competitive positioning in both global and local markets.
  • Identifying the hurdles REITs encounter in data gathering, report development, and cost management while transitioning to greener operations.
