ESGWomen

Gobi Partners is proud to present the first event in our online Sustainability Innovation Series!

 

 

Recently, Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) has been making headlines globally, with various organizations, financial institutions, and corporates all pledging to make ESG a priority. In Asia specifically, the opportunity is enormous: the region is an untapped market that is grappling with ESG issues that are ripe for disruption and comes with the possibility of making impactful market returns. Investors and corporations have further used the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) as a lens to translate the impact of investment activities into real economy outcomes with a wider social impact, further mapping opportunities that ultimately benefit society and businesses.

 

 

During this discussion, our resident ESG Advisor at Gobi Partners, Paul Ark, will demystify ESG and the UN SDGs, sustainability, and impact, and address some of the most pressing questions in these areas:
• How is ESG an impactful metric for companies?
• How have companies been able to implement such measures as a source of competitive advantage, value creation, and long-term financial sustainability?
• What are the opportunities to scale up ESG disclosure in Asia?
• What are some success cases of ESG and SDG implementation locally?
