Sustainability Week Asia

11-13 March 2024

Asia is critical to the transition to a sustainable future

Combating climate change is urgent. By taking the lead, businesses can help protect the region from some of the worst impacts of the climate crisis. But how can they move faster? What action can be taken now?

In its third year, Sustainability Week Asia will connect sustainability changemakers, purpose-driven consumers and business leaders to gain the tools needed to transition to net-zero, faster. Join us in Bangkok for case studies, in-depth panels, private roundtable discussions and networking opportunities, that support your journey to rapid business transformation. 

Highlight
12 March 2024 1:00pm-2:15pm (Thailand time)
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? 

Speakers:

  • Panakorn Dejthumrongwat, Head of investment promotion, InvestHK and HKETO
  • Dana Barsky, Global head of sustainability strategy and net zero, Standard Chartered Bank

Moderator:

  • Andrew Staples, editorial director, initiatives and alliances, and head of policy and insights (APAC), Economist Impact

Business links and trade and investment have a key role in tackling these challenges, through the investment, technology and expertise they mobilise – helping to accelerate the transition to a greener economy, catalyse innovation, and tackle regional inequalities.

There will be a focus on exploring opportunities in key strategic sectors including transportation and EV evolution, and biosciences and healthcare, as well as considering topics around supply chain and risk management.

With balanced analysis of key issues from leading China and global analysts, and senior company executives, the forum will examine key trends and themes from a UK and China perspective, but the forum will also assess the impact of peer nations, including the US, the EU and Australia.

The conference will be followed by CBBC’s Spring Reception.
