We will look at how ESG can impact the tax morale of companies & the environmental tax measurements taken by governments, this all from an Asian perspective. Companies (including tax law/advisory firms) face pressure to do it right (pay fair taxes / be transparent on their tax (advisory) policies) from not only investors, the regulatory and society, but also from (their own) employees. How can they however reach this ESG tax goal (without losing from the competition)? How can small companies contribute to the ESG tax goal? And what are the role of governments in this (environmental taxes/allowances) & whether governments should be made more accountability because of ESG 'collected' taxes?
