Impact of Sustainability on Brand Value: Evidence from Singapore’s Companies, ASEAN Next?
Sustainability in businesses has been related to better market values. This is driven by an investor-based perspective which draws from a cost argument. In essence, better sustainability will lower the cost of equity as value increases. In a new study, we found that sustainability, as measured by its reporting, will also lead to higher brand values, thus uncovering a revenue angle. This study is based on evidence from Singapore’s listed companies. The webinar will highlight the relationship between sustainability and brand values in a practical way, with emphasis on implications and insights for business and regulatory leaders. It will then reveal the latest sustainability reporting findings in ASEAN companies, with a view towards examining the impact on brand values.
