About Singapore Corporate Awards
The Singapore Corporate Awards (SCA) was launched on 19 September 2005 as the umbrella awards for exemplary corporate governance practices for listed companies in Singapore. It seeks to consolidate existing awards while introducing new awards in the area of excellent corporate governance.
The Best Annual Report Award was first introduced in 1974 to encourage listed companies to increase the extent and quality of voluntary disclosures in their annual reports. Prior to the SCA, this competition was jointly organised over the years by the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants, Singapore Exchange Limited, Singapore Institute of Directors, The Business Times, Securities Investors Association (Singapore), and Investment Management Association of Singapore.
The Best Managed Board Award, the first of its kind in the Asia Pacific region, was launched in 2003 to recognise and encourage enhanced corporate governance within companies. The Best Investor Relations Award and Best CFO Award were added in 2005 to form the Singapore Corporate Awards. The Best CEO Award was added in 2006. A special one-off Distinguished Contribution to Corporate Governance Award was given to Mr JY Pillay in 2015 for the tenth anniversary of the Singapore Corporate Awards. A Special Recognition Award was launched in 2016 to recognise outstanding and exemplary conduct related to corporate governance not covered by the other awards.
The inaugural Best Risk Management Award is introduced in 2019 to recognise and raise awareness of the core and leading risk management practices required to support and sustain the strategic direction of companies, especially in this age of technology and disruption.
