Watch out for the breaking news happening in the industry and SGBC’s latest developments.


SGBC Board Member Ms Esther An, the Chief Sustainability Officer of City Developments Limited (CDL), has been newly appointed to the GRI Board of Directors.

GRI is the provider of the world’s most widely used sustainability reporting standards and actively works with businesses, investors, policymakers, civil society, labour organisations and other experts to develop the GRI Standards and promote their use by organizations around the world.

The appointments come at a time when corporate sustainability is high on the global agenda – reinforced by the impact of the pandemic and the need to quicken progress on the Sustainable Development Goals – all of which emphasize GRI’s leadership role as an enabler for transparency and accountability.

On her appointment, Ms An said: “I am delighted to join the GRI Board as sustainability is now a mainstream business agenda. It’s also a momentous time as leading frameworks have pledged to collaborate for harmonization of global reporting standards. By contributing my reporting experience, it’s my hope to support the important work of GRI to raise the bar for strategic sustainability integration and transparency in the fast-growing Asian region.”

Alongside Ms An, the other 3 new Board appointees, which take effect from January 2021, are:

  • Bola Adeeko – Division Head, Shared Services, Nigerian Stock Exchange (Nigeria)
  • Cristina Gil – Vice President Sustainability, Orbia (USA)
  • Marina Grossi – President of CEBDS (Brazilian Business Council for Sustainable Development) (Brazil)
