ASrIA-AIGCC argues for policy action in a paper distributed to policy makers across the region – asking governments to ensure predictable, transparent and long-term policies are put in place to create a supportive environment for investors.

The statement provides guidance to policy makers on the frameworks required to mobilize substantial investment into low carbon and lean energy opportunities across Asia and transform the manner in which the regions grows.

The objective of the PE ESG Initiative is to support PE firms in building internal ESG capacity, strengthening capabilities, and raising awareness of ESG best practices across the industry more broadly.
