The ASEAN Guidelines on Promoting Responsible Investment in Food, Agriculture and Forestry (ASEAN RAI) are a roadmap for how private investors and governments can ensure investments in any ASEAN Member State are socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable and inclusive. ASEAN RAI includes 10 social, environmental, and governance (ESG) principles about how to avoid risks and have positive impact specifically in the food, agriculture and forestry sectors. The document was formally adopted by the ASEAN Ministers of Agriculture and Forestry in 2018, which means every ASEAN Member State is committed to translating this regional roadmap into national-level action and policy.

This site is a one-stop shop for all the information you need to learn more about why, where and how we translate the ASEAN RAI into concrete impact on the ground, following the 2020 - 2030 Action Plan. You’ll find information on the 10 Principles of the ASEAN RAI, how the Guidelines add value to existing certifications and standards, and roles for different stakeholders in making investments more responsible. You’ll also learn about upcoming and past events, find resources (the Guidelines, related reports, online courses, summary brochures and more!) and how to contact us to get involved.

This website is managed by Grow Asia with support from our partners.
