“One of the very few assurance standard around today that could really scrutinize a CSR Report in its completeness.”- Francis Cheong, Nokia

“The CSAP Course has not only refreshed my knowledge of the fundamentals of sustainability but has also widened my understanding of topics related to sustainability reporting and assurance, which is a progressive area and growing in popularity. Case studies given at the course have also been helpful in shaping my understanding of how other companies are responding to sustainability, both locally in Asia and globally. The course also has a practical element to it, enabling participants the chance to confidently draft an assurance statement towards the end of the course. Overall, I had a good learning experience, with thanks to guidance from the Instructors as well as sharing and networking sessions with other participants who attended the course.” -  Ruth Yeoh Pei Cheen, Executive Director, YTL Singapore Pte Ltd

“It was informative and incredibly inspiring to share in the experiences and perspectives of such a diverse and enthusiastic group. We covered so much valuable material in such a short space of time – a real feat of facilitation!” - Laura Frost, ARUP
