We review the key points discussed in our ESG in East Asia series, including the diversity dividend and employment, demographic pressures and business opportunities.
In this episode of our ESG 360 podcast, we review the key takeaways from the ESG in East Asia series, including the shortcomings in current ‘S’ data and why the ‘S’ component is under-researched. We take note of the data for five big geographies in East Asia and where, in particular, Japan and South Korea stand broadly versus peer countries. We also discuss the business opportunities inherent in the ‘S’ factor and which industries came out top.
