While the world faces the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become clear that there is an upcoming shift to rethink sustainability practices, business models, and investment priorities. With ESG standards being one of the most powerful and globally recognized tools to advance progress in sustainability, it is critical to ensure that we are well-positioned to integrate ESG in our current context.

As businesses, investors, asset managers, and philanthropists put more emphasis on the social aspects of ESG and explore thematic investing, what are the emerging trends under this new reality? Which risks and opportunities unique to the Asia-Pacific region must we pay attention to? How can different industries best integrate ESG into operational and supply chain management processes for the most effective results?

This webinar will share best practices from Moody’s on ESG measurement and analysis, particularly the frameworks developed by Moody’s Investors Services and Vigeo Eiris. Convening key stakeholders from various sectors across the globe, this webinar aims to build collaboration that crosses industries and geographies for a holistic approach to manage sustainability risks and opportunities through business policies, practices, processes and investing.

This webinar discussed:
