HKVCA ESG Award of Excellence 2021

“Inaugurated in 2017 as the first ESG award in Asia and held once every two years, the ESG award of excellence recognizes and honours private equity-backed trailblazers with outstanding ESG initiatives and accomplishments.  Not only the winner but indeed all the participating case studies over the last three awards are live examples of “doing well by doing good” that instil ideas and inspire actions for the Asia private equity community to engage more deeply with portfolio companies on ESG which create value for all stakeholders.”

– HKVCA ESG Committee Chair, Jie Gong
