Details

Building Momentum to a Sustainable Future 2019 - Interest in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards is growing in the Asia-Pacific driven by institutional investors, private banks, family offices and asset owners on one side, and the corporates that are starting to find value supporting their long-term business case.

The manifestation of their commitment is reflected especially in the area of finance where issuers have stepped up their issuance of green bonds, arranging sustainability-linked loans and managing their supply chain with increased focus on addressing issues on sustainability. While dedicated ESG
funds are only starting to become available in the Asia-Pacific, a number of mainstream funds have now integrated ESG standards in response to the demands from asset owners.
