2021年12月29日  |  採訪、撰文:葉盛 投資者對環境、社會及企業管治 ( ESG ) 接納程度日增,為吸引更多新資金流入,各基金公司都表示已把 ESG 因素融入投資流程,但具體執行起來,可能不似基金公司所述般理想。倡導投資者保護的組織 WealthAsia 行政總裁兼金融科技公司 BlueOnion  創辦人鮑婉玲表示,坊間部分基金誇大使用 ESG 準則來管理資產的程度,現有一些 ESG 評級的前瞻性亦不足,削弱了反映公司實際面對 ESG 風險時的處理能力。 鮑婉玲談到目前市場對 ESG 投資的各種問題時稱,在監管要求下,上市公司雖然加強 ESG 數據披露,但普遍純屬「交功課」心態,更有公司會因 ESG 評分低而撤換現有的第三方評分機構,選用其他 ESG 評分供應商。這些都反映上市公司對 ESG 的重視程度有待加強。 歸因市場對ESG標準各異 同時,坊間個別ESG評分供應商的評級準則前瞻性同樣不足,「依照某些評分標準,好多時候都是hindsight(後見之明),向後望一家企業過去數年的ESG表現,不足以代表將來的情況。」 對於上述亂象,鮑婉玲認為,都是源於市場對ESG具體標準莫衷一是,未能充分掌握所致。「大家知道有這件事(ESG),但去到要如何落實,在過去一年間的進步只是很少。」 在機構投資者層面上,鮑婉玲稱,基金經理把ESG因素納入投資框架時,大部分目前仍沿用傳統的「負面排除」方式,只把不符合ESG標準的公司剔出投資範圍,卻忽略與企業就ESG議題定期展開溝通,令ESG融入策略流於表面。 基金可協助企業轉型 長遠而言,機構投資者加強與企業溝通交流,協助改善其ESG不足之處,甚至啟動業務轉型,是更為負責任的方式。
