PHNOM PENH, CAMBODIA, March 25, 2015 – With support from the U.S. Agency for International Development Regional Development Mission for Asia (USAID/RDMA), the Mekong Partnership for the Environment and Private Financing Advisory Network (USAID PFAN-Asia) brought together over 40 non-government organizations, civil society and private sector representatives in the Mekong region to learn about emerging international trends in sustainable investment and environmental, social and governance integration. They met to strategize about making investments more sustainable, which reduces risk, saves money and improves their reputations.

The representatives from the private sector and civil society in Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam participated in the “Business Case for Integrating Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Factors in Investments” workshop in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, on March 24 and 25. Participants discussed the emerging trends and alternatives in sustainable investment, and shared strategies on how they can apply to environmental and social risk management.
