The 25th ESG Investment Frontier Forum Concluded Successfully

  6

On May 24, 2024, the 25th ESG Investment Frontier Forum was successfully held in Shenzhen, with the theme "ESG information disclosure and rating improvement".


This year marks the 20th anniversary since the concept of ESG was first clearly introduced in the United Nations Global Compact. In China, ESG development has entered a fast track. For enterprises, ESG helps mitigate risks, optimize assets, increase brand influence, and enhance corporate valuation. For financial institutions, ESG serves as an investment tool that combines value creation with risk avoidance. Nowadays, government agencies, stock exchanges, investors, and customers have increasingly clear ESG requirements for companies and financial institutions.

The milestone policy "Guidelines for Sustainable Development Reports of Listed Companies" implemented on May 1, 2024, marks a new phase of accelerated development in ESG information disclosure in China. As an important indicator of corporate sustainable development, ESG related report disclosures are increasingly valued by listed companies. In recent years, driven by policies and regulations, the A-share ESG report disclosure rate has steadily increased, with ESG content focusing more deeply on "social," "environmental," and "corporate governance" aspects.

In roundtable discussion, ESG report leaders from seven leading listed companies were invited to share practical experiences and insights on ESG information disclosure and ratings enhancement. It featured seven guests from leading listed companies representing different industries, including machinery, information technology, automation, real estate, new consumption, pharmaceuticals, and textiles. During the roundtable discussion, participants engaged in lively discussions on topics such as:

a. The development process, features, and advantages of ESG management practices and information disclosure within their companies.


b. How to identify substantial ESG issues based on industry/business characteristics and stakeholder expectations, and the practical tools and methods adopted.


c. Perspectives on the complex landscape of domestic and international ESG ratings and experiences in improving company ESG ratings.


d. Case studies on ESG challenges and solutions in international operations and business expansion.
