Investors and regulators see climate goals as essential to risk management and growth – and expect boards to drive to change. What action should a successful board in ASEAN be taking from the perspective of a global or regional investor? How is regulation changing the responsibilities of directors? How will investors balance the benefits of engagement with pressure they face to divest?

Climate standards for listed companies are beginning to converge. Most investors see the recommendations of the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and the guidelines of International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) as the gold standard for disclosure and accounting. What other metrics are investors using to understand companies' alignment with climate goals? How quickly do capital providers expect to see ASEAN firms adopt these standards? What are likely implications for companies that move fast - and those that don't?
