Sustainability and ESG have risen to the top of the global regulatory agenda. The pressure on corporates and financial institutions to improve their ESG and climate risk disclosures is ever-increasing. As Mark Carney, the UN special envoy on climate action and finance, warned in a 2021 interview: "Banks, pension funds and asset managers have to show where they are in the transition to net zero. And people are voting with their money."
To meet the challenge, financial institutions are evolving on the way they find, collect, and analyse data. This evolution helps stakeholders understand the sustainability and ESG impact of their balance sheet, as well as the risks and opportunities that come from climate change, ESG and associated regulatory policy responses.
Amidst the ESG transition, Singapore is not standing still as a financial center. Government, the financial sector and innovative providers of green and technological solutions have accelerated their efforts: to develop Singapore as a hub for green finance and ESG innovation in Asia, champion a more sustainable economy, and support Asia's transition to a low-carbon future.
At this event, a panel of experts will discuss topics such as:
What could the future roadmap be for climate and ESG-related disclosures and taxonomy?
What are the partnerships and technology-enabled solutions available as corporates and financial institutions look to assess ESG risk, meet regulatory mandates or guidelines, and align with customer values?
How can regulators industry players work better together to develop a vibrant sustainable finance ecosystem?
