Credit Suisse’s Asian Investment Conference 2022, Hong Kong


Jamie Allen, Secretary General, spoke in a virtual panel titled “What does China’s ESG policy big bang mean for investors?” at the Asian Investment Conference 2022 hosted by Credit Suisse on 22 March 2022.

After a string of major regulatory announcements in 2021, it is clear that environmental, social and governance (ESG) concerns are now a key driver of Chinese government policy. The focus on common prosperity and achieving peak carbon emissions by 2030 have embedded ESG in national strategic objectives and forced structural change in many industries. The heightened regulatory constraints on Chinese technology companies, antitrust enforcements targeting the digital economy and a wholesale reconfiguration of the education sector mean the stakes have never been higher. What can investors expect in this new reality? With it now more important than ever for investors to understand the implications of these high-level objectives, we invite leading policy experts in ESG to discuss China’s new priorities and the implications for investors.
