Calling ESG pioneers and advocates – ESG China Awards
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) has moved from being a concept to soft power for corporate sustainability and has become an important measure of a company’s health. Companies that practice and excel in ESG are preferred by the capital market and earn the trust and support of corporate stakeholders.
In order to identify and promote companies, organisations and individuals that have made outstanding contributions and positive impacts in the ESG sector, the BritCham Shanghai launched the first ESG China Awards, open to both local Chinese companies and multinational companies operating in China. The 2022 Awards are supported by the Shanghai United Assets and Equity Exchange, AustCham Shanghai, CanCham Shanghai and Impact Hub Shanghai.
