Asia is accountable for over 50% of global emissions emitting nearly 10 billion tonnes of carbon each year. This is set to increase rapidly as the urban population is projected to grow by 90 million by 2030. To make net zero achievable in Asia, significant emissions reductions are crucial.
As part of our global event series, Route to Net Zero: Asia will deep dive into the challenges and opportunities faced in managing climate risks in the region and present some of the latest developments and best practices in driving climate action among key actors. We will host a panel of experts, putting the topic of green finance under the magnifying glass to explore how financial investment and environmental responsibility intersect.
Attendees will also learn more about the opportunities available to companies and investors that can show leadership on climate change, with the agenda covering topics including carbon footprinting, net zero target setting, and the importance of transparency and reporting to demonstrate the effectiveness of action to stakeholders and consumers on your route to net zero.

“The recent IPCC report is a sobering reminder that Asia’s low-carbon future will require heightened ambitions and decisive actions from its financial institutions. There is no better time for Asian financial institutions to rise up to international expectations and actively steer their portfolio companies on the route to net zero.”
