Sustainable finance has gained significant momentum over the years, witnessing sharp growth in investments to promote the development of green strategies and support the transition to a more sustainable future. In a 2019 report, the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) estimated that the Asia-Pacific region alone requires an annual investment of US$1.5 trillion to achieve the UN SDGs by 2030, with clean energy and climate-resilient infrastructure accounting for almost a third of this figure ($434 billion).
Themed “Financing Asia’s Green Transition”, discussions at the Singapore Sustainable Investing and Financing Conference (SSIFC) 2022 will focus on how capital can be mobilised to accelerate investment in climate mitigation, catalyse climate innovations, develop stronger carbon markets and accelerate the energy transition.
Leveraging the combined networks and expertise of BlackRock, International Finance Corporation (IFC) and Temasek, SSIFC will convene key decision-makers from central banks, SWFs, financial institutions, private banks, government agencies and corporations across the Asia-Pacific region.
The second edition of Singapore Sustainable Investing & Financing Conference (SSIFC) will be held on 9 June 2022, as part of Ecosperity Week.
