Unlocking capital for sustainability is an annual premiere event organised by Eco-Business in partnership with UN Environment Programme (UNEP) 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 will require US$5 trillion of investments to address complex challenges of climate change, growing inequality and rising urbanisation by 2030. How can the finance industry accelerate the responsible deployment of capital for these solutions in a rapidly growing region?

[Update on 13 August 2020: With the global Covid-19 pandemic still ongoing, Eco-Business has decided to take our flagship Unlocking capital for sustainability conference fully virtual for the first time. The current crisis has exposed the critical link between ESG performance and human and planetary health. We believe that our event is a timely avenue for our community to have urgent discussions on how to mobilise finance to build back better.
The confirmed agenda can be found here.
