Corporate responsibility (CR) reporting rates in the Asia Pacific region have dramatically increased over the past two years. Findings from the eighth edition of the survey this year show that 71 percent of large companies in Asia Pacific now publish CR reports, an increase of 22 percentage points since 2011 when less than half – or 49 percent - did so. Asia Pacific’s surge in CR reporting is primarily due to high growth rates in several countries.
The three countries which saw the highest growth in reporting rates since 2011 are:
- India, with an increase of 53 percentage points
- Chile, with an increase of 46 percentage points
- Singapore, which saw reporting rates rise 37 percentage points from 43 percent in 2011 to 80 percent this year
Australia (+ 25 percentage points) and Taiwan (+19 percentage points) also experienced strong increases.
