Guides private capital investors on how to align their strategy, management, transparency and governance practices to achieve their decarbonization objectives

SINGAPORE, April 17, 2024/PRNewswire/ -- Fullerton Fund Management (Fullerton) has partnered with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) to develop a Sustainability Management Framework to guide investments private equity climate initiatives in Asia, using the UNDP SDG Impact Standards as a basis. The framework offers private equity firms a roadmap to adopt practices that can help accelerate their net-zero emissions goals.

In Asia, the environmental and business case for climate investments is compelling, with the potential market size for green businesses in Asia set to exceed $4 trillion by 2030[1]. Governments have firmly committed to decarbonizing their economies, and around $53.5 trillion in investments are needed between 2020 and 2060 to meet the already announced net zero targets[2]. There are huge investment opportunities ahead and venture capital can play a key role, alongside public spending, in filling the funding gap.

Venture capital investors are well positioned to exert greater influence on their portfolio companies on climate and sustainability issues. However, disclosure standards across the region are uneven and companies continue to fail to disclose information, particularly in emerging Asia. This presents a challenge for climate investors who want to evaluate the important environmental issues, and their implications, for their investments.

Through this framework, climate investors can conduct a critical evaluation of the various possible investment practices and decide which set of practices best fits their investment mandates and stakeholder requirements.

With the launch of this Investment Management Framework Sustainability with the support of UNDP, we are committed to integrating sustainability considerations into our private equity climate investments. And, more importantly, we look forward to sharing this framework and insights from real-world case studies with our counterparts. that can assess the relevant sustainability aspects needed to optimize decarbonization in the region," said Huck Khim Tan, Deputy Chief Investment Officer and Head of Alternatives at Fullerton Fund Management.

Recognizing this, we are delighted to collaborate with Fullerton Fund Management to develop this Sustainability Management Framework, leveraging the UNDP SDG Impact Standards for private equity funds. This framework is useful for climate investors seeking to align their internal practices and decision-making to achieve their sustainability objectives. decarbonization," explained Haoliang Xu, UN Under-Secretary-General and Associate Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme.
