Looking at the global market, impact investing, social value investing, and ESG investing have become the mainstream in the capital market. According to incomplete statistics from theResearch Institute at China Alliance of Social Value Investment, there are currently around 160 ESG fund products in China, with over 600 pan-ESG fund products. With the development and promotion of national policies, their expansion speed will become faster and faster.Li Wen from the Social Investment Alliance pointed out that ESG is no longer just a marketing tool or a moral standard. It involves aspects such as corporate governance and social change, including improving employee satisfaction, promoting product/service upgrades, avoiding potential operational risks, and enhancing the resilience of supply chain partners. For companies, fully embracing ESG is the only way to succeed in the future.
