ESG Compliance and Beyond

Turning a Regulatory Obligation into

a Market Opportunity for APAC’s Financial Institutions

27 July, 2022

3pm Singapore / Hong Kong | 5pm Sydney

Duration: 1 hour


For financial institutions across the APAC region, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) compliance represents one of the most fast-moving and multi-faceted of regulatory challenges, with far-reaching implications for risk and data management. This ‘heavy lift’ also offers opportunity for those able to ‘operationalise’ ESG and embed sustainability not only in its compliance and reporting practices, but also in its culture. The risks of ‘greenwashing’ are well known, but the long-term reputational benefits of delivering credible ESG-based propositions are only beginning to be realised.

In terms of its ESG regulatory framework, APAC broadly stands between Europe, the first-mover with its taxonomy, Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) and related rules, and the United States, only just beginning to align with Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). As APAC’s regulators ramp up their expectations, it is the perfect time for the region’s financial institutions to step up their efforts to deliver on ESG compliance and beyond to pursue commercial advantage.

This special webinar hosted by Regulation Asia and ESG Investor and supported by Fenergo seeks to uncover how financial firms can successfully operationalise ESG frameworks to manage regulatory, reputational and financial risk whilst reaping greater commercial benefits.

Key themes:

  • The current variance between mandatory regulations and voluntary standards
  • Concerns over transparency and reliability of ESG ratings and data, and the risks of 'greenwashing'
  • The growing reputational risk attached to ensuring accurate and transparent disclosure and reporting
  • The ability of financial firms to translate executive-level pledges into meaningful action within organisations
