The Singapore-based CSRWorks has announced its latest project: Asia’s Top Sustainability Superwomen, a non-profit initiative to honour the region’s exceptional female sustainability leaders. It will be an annual listing of women leaders who are driving change within and outside their organisations for a sustainable future.

Nominations for the first edition of Asia’s Top Sustainability Superwomen should be submitted online by 7 September. 

The nominations are open to native Asian women working in Asia with exemplary leadership in sustainability. Also eligible are expatriate women who have lived and worked in Asia for at least the past 5 years, championing sustainability.

The nominee should be in a senior management role with a demonstrated commitment to sustainability. Examples include CEOs or equivalent, executives directly reporting to CEO, Chief Sustainability Officers, Head of Sustainability or other similar positions if the nominee is from a non-corporate sector. The nominee should have held the current position for at least three years.

Women leaders from all sectors including but not limited to corporate, non-profit, academia, media, government, regulatory bodies, and associations are eligible for nomination. 

An international jury will review the nominations to decide the final list. This year’s list will be unveiled at the Asia Sustainability Reporting Summit in Singapore on the 2 October at the cocktail reception.

 “Asia’s Top Sustainability Superwomen initiative is to recognise the power, influence and contribution of women leaders who are passionately leading the transformation we all need to transition to a just, equitable, peaceful and low-carbon society,” says CSRWorks International Managing Director Rajesh Chhabara 

“Through this exciting initiative, we hope to inspire more young women to become change-makers,” he added.

Asia’s Top Sustainability Superwomen will be co-hosted with the Asia Sustainability Reporting Summit in Singapore during 2-3 October. The Summit will welcome more than 52 speakers and nearly 300 delegates representing the sustainability reporting community.

Asia’s Top Sustainability Superwomen is organised by CSRWorks International, Singapore’s trusted sustainability consulting and training firm.

CSRWorks International is a GRI-certified training provider, GRI data partner and a GRI gold community member. It is also IIRC’s foundation training partner for approved IR training in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, India, Sri Lanka and the Middle East.
