Sustainable and actionable: An ESG study of climate and social challenge for Asia

Sustainable and actionable: An ESG study of climate and social challenge for Asia is an Economist Intelligence Unit report, commissioned by Amundi. It explores environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing in fixed-income markets and examines the evolution of “green” debt from an issuer, investor and regulatory perspective. Central to the study is a question about market progress and if it has been enough, in Paris Agreement terms. Our research is based on indepth interviews conducted with 14 executives at asset-owner firms, regulatory bodies and finance professionals at academic or advisory organisations alongside extensive desk research and historical analysis. While the study concentrates on stakeholders and market players in Asia, the conclusions and implications are globally minded.
