The forum takes place at a critical time when South Korea’s financial market is facing both challenges and opportunities from a corporate-wide drive to embrace a new set of value on sustainable development.
Accelerated by the pandemic, sustainable business management focused on environmental, social and corporate governance principles has risen as a new economic paradigm. Capital reallocation to ESG investing is also bringing a seismic shift in global financial markets.
With a strong focus on ESG values on one hand, local financial players are also scrambling to gain an upper hand in the customer-centered digital transformation by using cutting-edge technologies, such as artificial intelligence and metaverse platforms.
We believe that the ESG movement and transition to digital finance would open a new future for the finance and investment industry, and also that such new values and practices would add fresh impetus to Seoul’s longcherished dream to become Asia’s next financial hub.
Responding to the paradigm shift to sustainable management, The Korea Herald, the nation’s largest Englishlanguage daily, is organizing an invitation-only event under the theme of “Korea’s ESG revolution: Green shoots after the pandemic.”
