Green Finance and ESG Solutions Assessment for the Manufacturing Sector in Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam

The Mekong Sustainability Manufacturing Alliance (MSMA) program is a 3-year USAID-funded alliance, led by the Institute for Sustainable Communities (ISC), with the principal aim of strengthening the lower Mekong region as a competitive and environmentally sustainable manufacturing hub, driving private-sector adoption of improved environmental and social safeguards by factories in the food processing, electronics, and textiles sectors. The program will focus primarily on Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam, with both country-specific and region-wide activities, and an emphasis not on increased compliance but on the business opportunities for these sectors from taking a more concerted approach to sustainable manufacturing practices.

ACE Partners has been retained to develop a landscape assessment in each country of the financing opportunities available for the manufacturing sector to advance environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance. In parallel to this, a similar landscape assessment was also conducted with a focus on locally appropriate solutions to improve factory ESG performance. This will allow ISC and MSMA stakeholders to understand the ESG context, priorities, and financing needs of manufacturers in each of the target countries, potential solutions for improving ESG performance, and the barriers that factory owners face to further action.
