The ESG Leaders Forum (ELF) is a practitioner-led initiative

Published on 2 Nov 2021

Recognizing the importance of sustainable investing, the UK and China have been working closely to encourage the growth of green and sustainable finance across the financial services industry under the UK-China Green Finance Taskforce, established in 2017. The UK-China Green Finance Taskforce is now co-chaired by Alderman William Russell, 692nd Lord Mayor of the City of London and Dr Ma Jun, Chairman of the Green Finance Committee (GFC) of the China Society for Finance and Banking.

The Taskforce initiated the UK-China ESG Leaders Forum (ELF) in early 2021. The Forum is a practitioner-led initiative to further embed ESG integration into the UK and Chinese investment community and to promote best practice to support British and Chinese asset owners and managers on their transition journey to sustainable asset allocation.

ELF consists of two independent workstreams for driving dialogue and change:1) Value Creation of Active Engagement; 2) Scaling ESG Solutions in Public and Private Markets.

On the 27th and 28th October, ELF released two reports titled “Value Creation of Active Engagement” and “Scaling Solutions – Public and Private Markets.”
