On May 2, 2022 the Bangkok Post reported that “the “Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) is prioritising the promotion of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) practices and products this year to ensure sustainability and attract a new generation of investors.

Apisak Kiewkarnka, deputy manager and head of finance for the SET, said the bourse had developed a SET-ESG framework focused on fulfilling four specific sustainable development goals: industry innovation and infrastructure, responsible consumption and production, reduced inequality, and climate action.

Ratwalee Anantananon, assistant manager and head of sustainable business for the SET, said the bourse recognised the importance of developing an infrastructure to create a sustainable finance ecosystem. In particular, she highlighted the need for full transparency from companies and an informed investor base.

Ms Ratwalee said two platforms are in development. The first is the SET ESG Data Platform to make ESG-related data disclosure mandatory for companies. The second is the SET ESG Academy to raise awareness regarding ESG among companies and university students.”
