ESG Trendsetters in APAC
Apr 4, 2022
For the MSCI APAC ESG Research team, three of the trends in MSCI’s 2022 ESG Trends to Watch report, resonated with particular strength and importance, as they present major potential risks and opportunities in the APAC region: The Coal Conundrum: Rethinking Divestment, Coffee vs. Burgers: Biodiversity and the Future of Food and The New “Amazon Effect”: Corporates Pushing Corporates for Net-Zero Supply Chains.
In this report we explore these three trends more deeply, delving into the underlying ESG metrics and ultimately identifying a group of companies that we felt confident in describing as ESG trendsetters, as well as those that appeared to be lagging.
Who are the ESG Trendsetters in APAC?
Investment in renewables, transparency in the supply chain, and measures to promote biodiversity create very different ESG risks and opportunities in different APAC markets. How can investors use MSCI’s underlying ESG datasets and metrics to identify companies that are leaders and laggards?
