Alan S Gutterman, Robert L Brown, Angela Gallerizzo, Soo-Young Song, Marc Weitz, and Namhee Yun

ESG—Environment, Social and Governance—is a hot topic in the U.S. and around the world, capturing the attention and energy of investors, regulators, politicians and media pundits.  Investing based on ESG principles, sometimes referred to as impact investing, is the subject of a book published by the International Law Section last year that included country authors covering Korea, India, and China in Asia.  They identified many commonalities, but also several differences.  More importantly they described trends.  This program will cover existing laws and where countries in Asia are heading with impact investing as social enterprises receive greater recognition. 

This panel was presented at the Fall 2023 Asia/Pacific Conference on “Law and Technology in a Changing World” in Seoul, South Korea.
