Using data to protect your reputation, business and investments
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors are increasingly being integrated into due diligence and compliance processes at financial institutions and corporates across Asia. Whether framing M&A strategies, reviewing supplier partnerships, adjusting portfolio weightings or approving loans, all organizations are using data more intensively to gain deeper insights before making key business decisions.
Driven by both regulatory and commercial considerations, this trend is here to stay. Regulators expect firms to conduct detailed risk assessments on their business models and partners, and to assess the impacts on stakeholders across the community. Similarly, investors, stakeholders and business partners are increasingly looking to protect their interests and reputations through the use of detailed data-driven assessments and analyses of the firms with which they engage. Whichever driver, the common goal is the same - to achieve long-term sustainable growth.
During this session we will explore:
- How due diligence practices are evolving for financial institutions and corporates
- The key regulatory and commercial drivers for integrating ESG factors in to due diligence practices in different business contexts
- Practical considerations around data availability, ESG scoring methodology and tools
