Executive Summary Sustainability Summit Asia 2017

Executive Summary Sustainability Summit Asia 2017

On November 1st 2017, The Economist held its first Sustainability Summit Asia at the Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa in Kuala Lumpur.

Discussing sustainability in the Asian context is becoming increasingly urgent as regional economies’ growth accelerates impressively.

Development in Asia has come at significant environmental costs, but most countries in the region have signed up to the 2015 Paris agreement to cut back on greenhouse-gas emissions and adapt more sustainable growth models by 2020.

For these goals to be achieved, businesses and policymakers must align their interests.
