In Europe and other regions, ESG requirements are finding their way into tender documents, with an increasing number of companies committing to reporting on their ESG performance.In the Asia Pacific, regulators are starting to pay attention to ESG risk with various governments introducing guidelines, and some mandating reporting.
Environmental risk scores are being used more frequently in financial services, and companies are working to address climate change impacts.
In the Asia Pacific, there is growing interest from investors in applying ESG principles to their investments. This has been driven by several factors, including the rise of sustainable investing funds and investment vehicles such as ESG index products.
Interest by the media in environmental, social, and governances issues have been on the rise in recent years. This is evident in the increasing coverage of ESG-related topics by the media, both traditional and new.
