As countries continue to reel from the social and economic fallout from the Covid-19 global pandemic, mobilising vast amounts of capital will be crucial to recovery. How to ‘build back better’ will largely be contingent on political will and the targeted financing of recovery programmes.
Tomorrow, at the annual Unlocking Capital for Sustainability event, Eco-Business, in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme, will convene high-level decision makers to discuss and commit to actionable initiatives that mobilise the capital markets for sustainable development in Asia Pacific.
We will debate some of the biggest quandaries facing governments and businesses, including how to scale sustainable finance, the risks associated with ESG and how government and the private sector can work closer together to deploy the vast sums needed to ensure a green recovery.
This year's event features a global set of speakers discussing the way forward in re-building our economies — we invite you to join us in this important conversation by registering here.
