The Post-Pandemic Future of ESG: An Event Series (Part 4: Asia-Pacific)

5.19.2021, 9:00AM

About the Event

Prior to the pandemic, environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors and ESG investing were gaining traction globally. Has this changed? In this series, experts from the Kroll Institute and the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) looked at the impact of the pandemic on the ESG investment climate and capital flows in emerging markets.

For the fourth and final event in the series, our experts focused on the Asia-Pacific region and address the following questions:

  • How have the pandemic, economic pressures and shifting global/geopolitical dynamics impacted ESG in the region?
  • What are the differences in the approach of stakeholders in the U.S. and Europe and those in southeast Asia on how they address ESG?
  • Will ESG compliance even be on the radar in Asia in the aftermath of the pandemic?
