ESG China Awards 2022 Launches Today

May 9, 2022 / CanCham

We are delighted to announce that online applications for 2022 ESG China Awards open now. 

The ESG China Awards is an awards programme recognising and promoting excellence from both local and international companies that have made a positive ESG impact in China.

In September 2020, China has announced its aim to peak carbon dioxide emissions before 2030 and, achieve carbon neutrality by 2060. After the 26th UN Climate Conference (COP26) in 2021, over 80% of global GDP are now covered by net-zero targets and commitments.

With the growing demand and alertness, businesses have been adopting Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) measures to show their commitment to change and futureproofing themselves. ESG now plays a vital role for investors and other key stakeholders and is a critical component of long-term value and business resiliency.
