Greenwashing and how to avoid it: an introductory guide for Asia’s finance industry.

April 2023.

This is an introductory guide intended for players in the Asian finance sector, including asset managers, banks, institutional investors, and regulators, to understand issues surrounding the growing phenomenon of greenwashing in the industry.

The report

  • addresses the prevalence of greenwashing in financial markets in Asia, and provides an overview of the various forms of regulation and guidance being developed to address it.
  • provides a typology of enforcement action being taken by a variety of regulatory bodies and actors against greenwashing across the globe, and identifies cases at the greenwashing frontier.
  • provides guidance on measures to guard against greenwashing risk.

Carbon Capture and Storage In The Decision Decade For Decarbonisation

November 2022

The large-scale adoption of carbon, capture and storage (CCS) continues to be a key assumption underlying major decarbonization pathways as a means to bridge the emissions gap, resulting in projected CCS capacity requirements that are an order of magnitude greater than present capacity.

AIGCC leverages selected findings and figures from a Wood Mackenzie’s report to draw conclusions for these sectors:

  • Power Generation
  • Steel Production

Investor Expectations of National Adaptation Plans in Asia

November 2022

The members of AIGCC’s Physical Risks Working Group have put together the following list of key asks from governments on the various elements of the National Adaptation Plan process:

  1. Outline a consistent, national view of physical climate risk
  2. Base national adaptation plans on scenario analysis
  3. Identify and prioritise vulnerable systems, groups and communities in NAPs in adaptation planning and implementation.
  4. Ensure corporate disclosure on physical risks
  5. Consult with members of the finance sector as part of the NAP process
  6. Include inter-regional effects in developing NAPs
  7. Include action-oriented points on implementation and financing strategies in NAPs

AIGCC’s Submission to the International Sustainability Standards Board

July 2022

AIGCC supports the development of consistent sustainability reporting standards globally. There is some level of fragmentation in the standards that are being implemented in many markets, however it is important now more than ever to develop a comprehensive and globally interoperable standard for sustainability reporting. Further delays in developing a global standard for sustainability disclosures will result in increasing costs, risks for the investment community as well as reporting entities operating internationally, and ultimately result in difficulties to give effect to the much-needed sustainability transition.
