ESG Professional Program

For Senior Leaders

Are ESG Risks Slowing Down Your Growth?

Are you struggling to make ESG practical and align it with your business goals in Asia?

The Challenge

Navigating ESG complexity, deciphering acronyms, and understanding what applies to your business in Asia is overwhelming.

Keeping up with European and other international legislation is making it harder to sell your products, leaving you uncertain about the next steps. Or if you can even keep selling in that market?

If you're Here, Chances Are...

  • You’ve read books or taken courses on ESG but still can’t apply it effectively in your business.
  • You’re frustrated by the lack of practical, commercially viable ESG strategies.
  • You’re unsure how regulatory changes abroad will impact your operations in Asia.
  • You’re worried about potential asset devaluation, stranded assets, or write-offs.
  • You’re watching the ESG space and wondering if changes may affect your business and bottom line.
