The National Center for Corporate Reporting (NCCR) again held the Asia Sustainability Report Rating (ASRRAT) 2023 ranking ceremony. The ASRRAT award ceremony which was attended by 68 companies and organisations took place at the Raffles Hotel, Jakarta (06/11) and carried the theme Navigating the Path to Net Zero: Accelerating Climate Action In Asia. Net Zero Emissions (NZE) is where we remove as many greenhouse gases from the face of the planet as possible. In addition to the award ceremony, ASRRAT this time also exhibited a sustainability exhibition of a number of companies.
Former Indonesian Minister of Research and Technology Prof. Bambang Brodjonegoro in his online speech explained that this theme is quite urgent, navigating the path to net zero. “Our planet has experienced an alarming increase in average temperature of 1.1 degrees Celsius, which is a direct result of exhaust emissions we once made. The goal ahead is very clear. We must reduce greenhouse gas emissions significantly and strive to achieve zero emissions by 2050 to mitigate further temperature increases,” said Prof. Bambang Brodjonegoro.
In his opening remarks, NCCR Chairman, Dr. Ali Darwin appreciated the participants of ASRRAT 2023. He said that “The dedication of companies and organisations to transparency and accountability and their initiatives to measure and mitigate environmental and social impact risks are inspiring. Sustainability reports have provided valuable insights into progress made in reducing emissions, conserving resources, and advancing social justice. It also serves as a road map for other businesses and organisations to follow.”
Meanwhile, on the same occasion, the Chairman of the ASRRAT 2023 Jury, Prof. Irwan Adi Ekaputra said that “With the participation of 68 leading companies, ASRRAT 2023 has increased significantly from the previous year. In addition, ASRRAT 2023 has also been attended by several additional countries, not only from Indonesia, namely Bangladesh, the Philippines, Australia and Russia. This is encouraging, as it signifies the increasing commitment and dedication of organisations around the world towards sustainability efforts and responsible business practices.
Prof. Irwan Adi Ekaputra said that the ASRRAT 2023 assessment process involved a panel consisting of five judges and an assessor team consisting of 18 CSRS certified assessors from all over Indonesia. Careful evaluation and in-depth guidance are essential in upholding Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards, enabling us to maintain transparency and accountability in assessing sustainability practices.
