AVCJ ESG FORUM

The 8th annual AVCJ ESG Forum successfully took place on the 14 November at the Four Seasons in Singapore and online.

The Forum brought together over 850 senior industry executives from 32 countries to discuss the latest trends and challenges in implementing ESG in Asia’s private markets investments.

The event kickstarted with a fire-side chat on the ESG global emerging trends with Katie Schmitz Eulitt Director, Investor Relationships; Senior Market Co-leader for APAC with IFRS Foundation and facilitated by Steven Okun, Senior Advisor with Global Private Capital Association.
