Driven by robust investor demand across the board—from family offices to institutional investors to sovereign wealth funds—assets under management of APAC-based ESG funds have now topped $65 billion, up from just $5 billion in 2018. Despite this momentum, China still accounts for only about 10% of total regional ESG assets under management, highlighting tremendous potential for growth. China has also been a global leader in green bonds, with continued innovation in areas such as carbon neutrality bonds and green certificates of deposit. Moreover, China’s pledge to be carbon neutral by 2060 has fueled an aggressive shift towards clean energy technologies—notably in renewable energy and electric vehicles, which will attract significant investment over the next few years.
