Ray Chisnall, BritCham Shanghai Chair,

“The rapid development & adoption of ESG across the global community has been heartening to see. ESG can bridge divides across cultures, languages, businesses and hopefully geopolitics and I believe presents us with a unique opportunity to move business and society forward in a more sustainable way.

ESG has been in the past two years, and will continue to be, one of our Chamber’s key areas moving forward to support our members and the wider business community. Through peer support and sharing of experience, knowledge and expertise, we aim to help develop an eco-system for ESG best practices in China and the global market.”

ESG China Awards Chair, Board Member of Global Reporting Initiative, Dr Jianzhong Lu said,

“Although the Awards is a new & young program set up in this challenging time, we have received 115 qualified applications from all over the country. From Beijing to Shanghai, Wuhan to Shenzhen and Hong Kong, the impressive applications representing diverse industry sectors. The outstanding applicants include both foreign-owned enterprises rooted in China and nearly 40% were from local Chinese businesses.

We are pleased to see that, regardless of the size of the company, the concept of sustainable development is more and more deeply integrated into corporate thinking, strategy and operation as well as closely combined with the major issues of China’s economic and social environment. They have made new progress in corporate governance, low-carbon promotion, environmental protection, rural revitalisation, diversity and inclusion, including some admirable innovative achievements.”
