Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) refers to the three pillars in assessing the sustainability and societal impact of an investment in a company or business. Discussions around responsible investment and ESG considerations have taken centre stage within the asset management industry in the last few years and heightened further this year due to Covid-19.

The webinar aims to provide an overview of sustainable investing and ESG from different perspectives such as investments, trends, developments, data challenges, and standards and regulations. Further, the discussion will delve into the different strategies for responsible investments, global and local developments in the sustainability space and how different industry players are responding to the same across Asia-Pacific and across asset classes
