RepRisk releases Special Report on Myanmar
Report analyzes the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks in Myanmar’s three key sectors
Zurich, Switzerland – August 31, 2016 – RepRisk, the leading provider of dynamic business intelligence on ESG risks, has released its Special Report on Myanmar, the last 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 facing Myanmar and its three most exposed sectors – Oil and Gas, Mining, and Utilities.
These sectors all play a crucial role in the country’s economy, yet have been closely linked to issues related to human rights abuses and various adverse impacts on local communities such as land grabbing and forced evictions.
The first report in the ASEAN series was published in December 2015 on Indonesia. The second report on the Lower Mekong Delta was published in February 2016 and covered Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam. The third report on Malaysia was published in May 2016, followed by the second to last report on the Philippines.
