Efforts to address climate change are becoming increasingly mainstream, with economies around the world recognising the impending climate crisis. But there remain differing views regarding other environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors. In recent months, American and European regulators have expressed renewed concern about labour rights in ASEAN’s manufacturing and food industries. However, from an ASEAN standpoint, businesses and communities may still be prioritising basic needs, especially with economic and food security pressures now being intensified by the COVID-19 pandemic. How can our region’s businesses, investors, and financial institutions respond to emerging ESG issues in key supply chains?

  • How do perceptions of ESG differ between developed economies and the ASEAN region?
  • What are the material ESG issues rising to the forefront in ASEAN, and how can we identify sector-specific or company specific priorities?
  • How can meaningful implementation of ESG commitments be ensured?
