Project Summary

New Zealand, supported by the OECD, will organize a high-level seminar to discuss how sustainable finance is changing or can change the face financing and infrastructure financing in APEC economies. It will begin by assessing the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices in Asia in terms of ESG rating, their reporting criteria, as well as guidance from authorities in relation to this. This will be based on OECD analysis on ESG rating metrics and ratings, and the performance of indices and funds, and how ESG can better align with financial materiality. This will be followed by the practices of central banks and their ESG practices. 

For the infrastructure financing side, the high level seminar will examine how ESG and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are being used in investment decision making for quality infrastructure. Data availability and disclosure are likely to also be key components for this process taking place. Then the role of authorities will be discussed in terms of supporting resilient and sustainable infrastructure.
