Investors today want to align their investments with their personal
and social values. Whether it’s tackling marine or water pollution,
addressing climate change, alleviating poverty or helping more women
break the glass ceiling, we are witnessing a rising demand for
sustainable investing incorporating Environmental, Social and
Governance (ESG) factors.
The COVID-19 pandemic has also highlighted core sustainability issues,
such as income inequality, insufficient medical care as well as
disrupted global supply chains. As a result, sustainability is likely
to be increasingly important for investors.
Traditional accounting based financial analysis is inadequate to cope
with hidden risks and opportunities, which are very important to
determine management quality and reputational risks. These ESG-related
hidden risks and opportunities could create actual tangible impact on
the performance of investment portfolios.
SO WHAT'S ESG?
At Allianz Global Investors (AllianzGI), we consider ESG –
environmental, social and governance – factors
alongside financial factors in our investment decision-making process.

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IN INDONESIA
Indonesia ranks second among nations with the highest plastic
waste contribution to the ocean. In order to reduce its
plastic waste, Indonesia has implemented several regulations
to minimize the use of plastic bags.
Indonesia has begun directing its people to convert to using
electric vehicles through various programs and regulation. The
use of electric vehicles is expected to help reduce fuel
imports and support the target of net zero emissions by 2060.
In order to realize its target of reducing 29% of national
greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, Indonesia has formulated a
roadmap and strategies allocated to relevant sectors,
including energy, industry, waste, agriculture, and forestry.
As the largest ASEAN country, Indonesia accounts for nearly
two-fifths of energy consumption in ASEAN. In order to
minimize its reliance on domestic production of coals and
imported fuel, Indonesia aims to achieve 31% use of renewable
energy by 2050.
