Panel Session at Simmons & Simmons


Jamie Allen, Secretary General, spoke in a panel session “ESG beyond the E - corporate governance in Asia” in the Global legal and business outlook virtual event hosted by Simmons & Simmons on 12 October 2021.

The increased interest in ESG during the COVID-19 pandemic has been dramatic - more than doubling over the course of 2020 alone. Citizens, institutions and investors globally appear to be considering ESG as part of their response to the pandemic, and there is an increased emphasis on the Social and Governance pillars as organisations look to improve their resilience. We go behind those headlines to discuss the rise of stakeholder governance in Asia.
