ESG Asia Forum ESG亞洲論壇

Assimilating Building and Technology Towards a Sustainable Future 環保建築及技術 ∙ 實現永續新未來

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) reporting is transforming the construction landscape as investors, stakeholders, and project leaders increasingly emphasise value-driven investment, one that concerns the benefit to our environment and communities. This event will take place over 2 afternoons on 11-12 May at Build4Asia 2023, where you will meet finance, sustainability and governance experts to explore investor expectations and new practices to stand out in the new era of ESG reporting!

近年來,環境保護、社會責任和公司治理 (ESG) 指標越來越受大眾重視,投資者和項目負責人強調價值驅動的投資,更着建築項目對環境和社區的整體利益。有見及此,Build4Asia 2023將於5月11至12日下午呈獻全新ESG亞洲論壇,讓你與金融、可持續發展和管理專家會面,探討投資者的期望以及ESG新指標和趨勢,講者將分享低碳建築經驗,助你從中發掘淨零關鍵與低碳商機。
