ESG in China is critical to achieving sustainability goals, in particular on climate change and the environment. As the second largest economy globally by GDP and home to the world’s second largest equity and bond markets, yet still with emerging market status, sustainability practices are starting to mature in the country. Recent developments include the inception of standardised reporting requirements, the development of government green industry guidelines and China’s important goal to achieve peak carbon by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060. Join this upcoming webinar in which our panel of experts will discuss: • How should investors navigate ESG through a Chinese lens and what are the opportunities and singularities of ESG integration in China’s A share market? • With developments towards a unified reporting framework, what is the current status of the data and what insights should investors consider to gain a perspective on sustainable investment particularly in light of current market volatility? • What developments are being made by domestic investors in developing an active landscape for stewardship and furthering corporate sustainability in line with international trends?
