AGF was Selected in the <2021-2022 Collection of Excellent ESG Investment Cases>


Recently, the 21st Century Business Herald and 21st Century Economic Institute jointly released the <2021-2022 Collection of Excellent ESG Investment Cases> (Hereinafter referred to as Collection). Asia Green Fund (AGF) was selected for the Collection because of our rich experience in ESG investment.

In recent years, China's economy has gradually shifted from a high-speed growth stage to a high-quality development stage. ESG investment concept, which represents Environmental, Social, and Governance, pays attention to long-term value and sustainable development, and more attention has been paid to it by the market. The 21st Century Business Herald has enlarged the report and research on the development trend of ESG, ESG strategies, and practices of institutions and enterprises. The Collection aims to inquire about the current situation of ESG investment in the Chinese PE industry, publicize and popularize advanced typical experiences, and promote the practice of ESG investment in institutions.

Asia Green Fund is an early private equity fund in China to institutionalize ESG policy and quantitatively evaluate the green impact of an investment. ESG has been the core of AGF’s investment philosophy and strategy since its establishment. It adheres to the mission of "Investing · Greenergize China · Impact Asia", helps portfolios with new green impact through capital-enabling technology innovation, and pursues a win-win situation of “financial returns and environmental benefits”.

To help realize the goal of "Carbon Peaking and Carbon Neutrality", AGF knows that the consideration of environmental benefits is the key to carrying out impact investment, and deeply constructed ESG evaluation system and integrated it into the whole process of "fund-raising, investment, post-investment management, and exit". AGF has set up a Green Technology Research Institute and after six years of efforts, independently developed a green impact assessment system (CNGIAS) that has been certified by international authorities. CNGIAS can track and evaluate the carbon emissions of managers themselves and their managed funds, and accurately quantify the contribution of portfolios and assets under management to carbon neutrality and green impact.

Since 2020, AGF has successively become a signatory of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) and the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN), shouldering the mission of responsible investment and carrying out ESG investment with higher standards and higher transparency. In April 2021, AGF released the "Carbon Neutralization and Green Impact Report in 2020", explaining to the industry and investors the environmental benefits of investment through the amplification of capital. In 2022, AGF certificated the ISO 14097- <Management of Greenhouse Gas and Related Activities--a framework containing the criteria and requirements for evaluation and reporting of investment and financing activities related to climate change> issued by BSI, becoming the first private equity investment institution in Asia to publicly announce the certification.

In addition, AGF consciously and systematically links investors, portfolios, authoritative organizations, data institutions, and the public and international organizations through investment activities, and is committed to building an ecological circle of green impact investment and promoting the development of green impact.
