CSE wins ISAR 2020 award

8 November, 2020

The Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) was recognised as an honouree in the national category at the International Standards of Accounting and Reporting awards (ISAR) 2020 recently.

The award was presented in recognition of CSE’s engagement with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) to enhance corporate transparency in Sri Lanka by promoting sustainability reporting among listed companies through workshops, events, roundtables and the publication of an ESG Guidance document for Listed Companies.

The ISAR awards organised by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) is a platform created to raise awareness and facilitate dissemination of national and international best practices on sustainability and Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) reporting. ISAR was introduced to further strengthen and support public and private sector efforts on enhancing the quality and comparability of companies’ reporting on their contribution to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and its usefulness for monitoring the implementation of the SDGs which are designed to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.

The CSE signed an agreement with GRI in 2018 to foster effective sustainability performance and communication among Listed Companies.
