Initiatives | Sustainable Finance

One of the key initiatives by the ACMF is the development of social asset classes in line
with the growing importance of social finance in ASEAN. To support ASEAN’s sustainable
development needs, the ACMF has developed the ASEAN Social Bond Standards (ASEAN
SBS) to complement the ASEAN Green Bond Standards that were first
introduced in November 2017. The ASEAN SBS intend to enhance transparency, consistency
and uniformity of ASEAN Social Bonds which will also contribute to the development of a
new asset class, reduce due diligence cost and help investors to make informed investment
decisions.
