by Seungjoo Ro / Feb 23, 2023


On 13 December 2022, ACGA published a new research report “Down to earth: Climate governance case studies in Asia Pacific” on climate governance prepared jointly with CLSA. It comprises case studies on nine companies in the Asia Pacific region: we look at the organisational changes, strategy rewrites and new approaches to risk and targets these companies are taking to address climate change. Our research included interviews with management and executives to gain insight into the groundwork being laid and active steps taken. The report takes a TCFD framework in presenting our analysis, with ACGA examining governance and strategy, and CLSA researching risk management and metrics/targets at the following firms:

• Transurban (Australia)
• China Mengniu Dairy (China)
• MTR (Hong Kong)
• Dalmia Bharat (India)
• Komatsu (Japan)
• Shinhan Financial (Korea)
• Jardine Matheson (Singapore)
