ESG & NGO: Prospect & Possibilities

The business sector is putting more attention on environmental, social and governance issues (ESG) than ever. ESG investment is expected to reach US$1 trillion by 2030. The rise of ESG is a new powerful engine to bring the World to achieve Sustainable Development Goals. 

To amplify the good ESG investment can bring to the World, guidance and monitoring are important. NGOs can play a significant role in embedding a culture of sustainability and accountability to better equip businesses, investors, and other stakeholders to confront complex sustainability opportunities and change.

 This session aims to explain why ESG is relevant to NGOs in Asia and offer some tips to capture the opportunities.
