He said that the ACMF, as a regional capital market regulatory group, can contribute to ASEAN countries' economic transition toward a low-carbon economy, especially in the six sectors prioritized in the ASEAN Taxonomy Version 1. According to Djajadi, ACMF will also develop a transition guideline so that companies can carry out the transition process in a transparent and credible manner.

ACMF will continue to strengthen collaboration with the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) on encouraging corporate sustainability disclosure, building awareness, increasing green economy technical competence, and bolstering knowledge transfer.

This year, ACMF is looking forward to launching the Sustainable Finance Knowledge Hub, the ASEAN Green Lane, and the publication of the revised ASEAN Corporate Governance Scorecard (ACGS).

In addition, based on data from the ASEAN Green, Social, and Sustainability Bond Standards introduced in 2017 and 2018, ASEAN-labelled green, social, or sustainable bonds worth about 38.06 billion USD had been issued as of March 15, 2023.
