Asia Shareholder Action

Asia Shareholder Action is an Asia-Pacific-based initiative to empower shareholders to take action on climate change through engagement with company management, the exercise of shareholder rights and responsibility as stewards of the companies.

Investors are taking urgent and critical action on climate change. Through these activities, we aim to enhance long-term, sustainable corporate and shareholder value.

Climate finance experts from international environmental NGOs are working with institutional investors to encourage companies, which invest in the expansion of the fossil fuel sector to properly manage their climate change, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) commitments, along with their other associated financial risks.

The fossil fuel sector is the largest source of emissions exacerbating climate change and includes mining companies, power producers, and the financial institutions that finance and invest in these corporations.
