Networking luncheon and fireside chat: Fostering green financing for net-zero innovations (Invitation only)

A few megatrends of note for business leaders over the next decade will shape society and organisations: amongst them the net zero transition and digitalisation. Forward-leading smart nations are committed to fostering the development of technological advancements to mitigate and adapt to climate change and drive resilience against other potential headwinds. Governments see that driving corporate action in sustainability and climate technology innovation takes finance, in the form of green bonds, loans, environmental risk assessments, insurance and other financial instruments. Where are the dynamic green financial hubs in the region? What new financial instruments can support the net-zero transition? What factors are improving the availability of green finance in Asia, and which are constraining it? To what extent can sustainable financing drive innovation?
