Unlocking Capital for Sustainability is an annual premiere event organised by Eco-Business in partnership with UN Environment that brings together high-level decision makers in finance, business, government and civic society to discuss and commit to actionable initiatives that mobilise the capital markets for sustainable development.
The financial sector stands at a crossroads of change: Since the 2008 global financial crisis, the role of finance in building equitable, sustainable economies has been debated across societies. Set amid this backdrop is the rise of sustainable finance, which allocates capital with an environmental, social and governance (ESG) lens to create long-term value. Despite the encouraging momentum however, the deployment of private capital for sustainable finance remains relatively small.
According to the Business and Sustainable Development Commission, sustainable development in Asia to address complex challenges of climate change, growing inequality and rising urbanization will require US$5 trillion of investments by 2030. How can the finance industry accelerate the responsible deployment of capital in the region as it continues its rapid growth?
