Hong Kong listed companies face growing demand by their stakeholders for transparency and disclosures of non-financial information. The Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEX) upgraded the environmental, social and governance (ESG) reporting requirements in 2016, requiring listed companies to disclose, among others, information on their anti-corruption policies and compliance with relevant laws and regulations on a ‘comply or explain’ basis.
An effective anti-bribery management system is a key element of good corporate governance. The Corruption Prevention Department of ICAC has conducted a review of listed companies’ first ESG disclosure of anti-corruption information under the upgraded ESG reporting requirements. In the seminar, speakers from ICAC will share their observations and insights of the review. They will introduce good practices in disclosing anti-corruption information, so that listed companies may better comply with the reporting requirements and enhance stakeholders’ understanding and confidence on the companies’ governance system.
Major topics include:
• Overview of HKEX’s ESG reporting requirements related to disclosure of anti-corruption information
• Observations of ICAC’s review of listed companies’ first disclosure of anti-corruption information in their ESG reports
• Recommended core elements and good practices in disclosing anti-corruption information
• Introduction of Corruption Prevention Advisory Service of ICAC and its free, confidential and tailored-made advisory services for listed companies
