Net zero engagement in Asia

With climate change an increasingly urgent concern, corporate engagement on climate change in Asia has transformed in the last five years into a new but widely accepted form of stewardship. This has come against the backdrop of increasing regulatory focus in Asia on net zero transition pathways for the corporate sectors.

The guide “Net zero engagement in Asia – A Guide to shareholder climate resolutions” is a resource for Asia-focused investors considering shareholder resolutions as a complement to broader corporate engagement options when exercising responsible stewardship on climate matters.

In this guide, leading corporate lawyers from 11 jurisdictions in Asia provide expert analysis on the framework for shareholder climate resolutions in India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the People’s Republic of China, Hong Kong SAR, the Philippines, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. Each jurisdiction’s expert also provides a summary of key developments relevant to climate risk and ESG in that jurisdiction, to situate investor engagement within its appropriate local context.
