KEXIM plans to create the ESG-related funds in 2022 as well and will continue to assess ESG factors such as ESG investment plan and ESG management system when selecting fund managers. Also, KEXIM will expand its direct investment in the ESG sectors by utilizing diverse investment methods such as equity investment and convertible bonds. In doing so, KEXIM will induce fund managers themselves to incorporate ESG factors in their socially responsible investments. This will in turn promote Korean companies to internalize ESG values and reinforce their underlying soundness, thereby supporting overseas expansion of Korean companies in the ESG sectors.
