China is the world’s second largest economy, a country that has grown steadily over the past few decades. These are well-known facts.

But how do economic and social developments, growing wealth, and generational shifts influence China’s understanding of its place in the global sustainable development agenda? What exactly is ESG in China and how are Chinese companies addressing it? Why is China actively cooperating with EU ESG regulators?

Finally, and most importantly for us, given Russia’s declared pivot to the East, to what extent is China’s experience applicable to Russia? Can China become a viable alternative amidst the suspended cooperation between Russian companies and Western rating agencies? Is there a potential for Russia–China cooperation on ESG, and if so, what would it look like?

There are so many questions, which ESG GAZETA has tried to answer in this special China issue.
