ZURICH, Switzerland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RepRisk, the leading provider of dynamic business intelligence on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks, has released its Special Report on the Lower Mekong Basin, the second in a series of reports on the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), an economic and political organization of ten countries.
The report highlights the ESG challenges and risks – many of them transboundary – facing the four countries along the lower reaches of the Mekong River: Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Traditionally, the economies of these countries have been closely linked to the abundance of water resources. However, as the region moves away from an agrarian-based economy and embraces industrial development, the countries face the challenges of balancing economic growth with environmental and social concerns.
Over the coming months, RepRisk will be publishing Special Reports on other countries that form the ASEAN bloc. The first report in the ASEAN series was published in December 2015 and assessed the ESG risks facing Indonesia, the largest economy in the ASEAN bloc.
