Sustainability

Research

CLSA delivers sustainability insights for investors incorporating ESG factors into their investment decisions.

Our Sustain Asia Research team delivers insights into core corporate governance, environmental, and social issues in Asia, providing global asset managers with necessary information required to integrate ESG into their investment mandates.  

CLSA Research analysts produce specialist ESG reports on sectors and markets. The dedicated Sustain Asia research team regularly publish thematic reports covering the region’s most significant developments. Since 2000, our CLSA proprietary system has graded all CLSA covered companies on corporate governance issues, and since 2014 on environment and social concerns. We review the factors influencing the allocated scores annually in partnership with the Asian Corporate Governance Association (ACGA).
