The Association for Supporting the SDGs for the UN (ASD) is an observer organization to the ICMA Green and Social Bond Principles. Also, we created an Asian Plastic Working Group with the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) which is the international ESG standards organization and we are promoting research projects regarding ESG Environmental standards of the Asia-Pacific region.
ASD conducts ‘Second-Party Opinion and SDGs mapping and Global Recommendation Statement List for Excellent Companies in ESG Implementation (GSL)’ on corporate-issued post reporting of Green Bonds (GB) and Social Bonds (SB) in accordance with Recommendations for Sustainable Finance Taxonomies.
In particular, the GSL strongly advises companies on ESG financing and investment.
The association has also proposed Asia’s First-ever ‘ESG Quantitative Easing (ESG QE)’ and advises the revitalization of green bonds, social bonds, and MBS, thereby boosting the economy, increasing job opportunities, climate response, carbon reduction, and energy conversion.
