In the past year, it has become apparent that the integration of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors into investment strategies matters more than ever before. As ESG moves into the mainstream across the globe, Asian GPs can expect to feel the pressure from their LPs as the dialogue begins to shift. It is therefore crucial not to be left behind.

Co-hosted by AVCJ and the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI), the annual AVCJ ESG Forum returns for its sixth year to provide an educational platform for industry practitioners in the region. The forum aims to provide GPs with a deep dive into the latest trends and issues affecting ESG integration and impact investing around the world, and to foster dialogue and debate between GPs, LPs, and industry participants.

This year, the AVCJ ESG Forum will be presented in a virtual event format, with virtual and interactive broadcasts to allow a global audience to enjoy the forum from the comfort and safety of their computer or mobile device.
