ESG on the Mainland and in Hong Kong - State of Play and Outlook
Chinese A-share listed companies have been improving their environment, social and governance (ESG) disclosures following the Central Government’s pledge to achieve carbon neutrality by 2060.
At a webinar on 20 August, Frederick Chu, Executive Director at Haitong International Asset Management, said that Mainland companies have responded quickly, with most of the Shanghai-Shenzhen CSI 300 Index constituents incorporating ESG reporting voluntarily.
He was joined by Pat Woo, Partner at KPMG China, who explained ESG regulatory developments across the Asia Pacific and Europe. His colleagues Budha Bhattacharya and Kin Yu, respectively Head of Analytics for ESG IQ and Data Analytics Director, provided an introduction to their company’s ESG data platform, which helps identify greenwashing risks.
