Climate Change and Sustainability Services
Sustainability related opportunities and challenges have gradually reshaped perspectives of businesses on the impact of environmental and social issues on their operations. In response to these issues, businesses and investors alike are beginning to adopt a more proactive approach in managing environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.
On the global business arena, companies are factoring sustainability issues in short-term goals and long-term strategic plans. In China, in order to respond to sustainability challenges and opportunities, companies are beginning to adopt the approach of managing ESG issues and disclosing sustainability performance accordingly.
Due to increasing compliance requirements by regulators and forward thinking demands from capital markets, Chinese companies no longer pursue for transparency on financial performance alone. Companies would also focus on managing ESG risks, and disclose sustainability performance accordingly. Also, as the public discourse in climate change intensifies, new business opportunities such as carbon trading and green technology began to emerge and extend to the Chinese business community. As a result, some Chinese companies are now seen to be proactively involved in the management and disclosure of their ESG performances.
