2019 ASEAN Institutional Investors Forum
14 June 2019 Bangkok, Thailand
The ASEAN Institutional Investors Forum convened experts on responsible investment to discuss best practices and share experiences on how environmental and social factors can be integrated into investment decision making with a focus on the ASEAN region.
In this respect the OECD, the EU and the ILO are working together to promote Responsible Supply Chains in Asia. Working with governments and businesses across China, Japan, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, this initiative promotes RBC with regard to the environment, decent work and human rights in global supply chains. Engagement with the financial sector will be an important part of achieving these objectives as institutional investors can play a crucial role in driving RBC amongst the companies they invest in.
