Environmental, social, and governance investment (ESG) has gained momentum around the world and the trend is moving towards Asia, especially in ASEAN countries. Against this backdrop, ASEAN-Japan Centre (AJC) has prepared an “ESG Investment Report 2018: Towards Sustainable Development in ASEAN and Japan” to urge investors to invest responsibly by building a basic understanding of ESG investment and contribute to the better and sustainable investment environment and society in Japan and ASEAN countries.
Building from this report, AJC will host discussions on ESG investment trends and prospects in ASEAN at its Environmental, Social, and Governance Investment Forum, which will take place at the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET), Bangkok, on 19 March 2019.
On this occasion, AJC has the honour to invite you to attend our forum.
