Nowhere is the opportunity for sustainable finance greater than in Asia. Many Asian countries have achieved strong economic growth over a sustained period of time, and this has enabled large-scale improvements in living standards and reductions in poverty across the continent. However, this model of resource-intensive growth has created long-term risks to sustainability, and Asia faces the threat of unraveling past gains if these risks are not effectively addressed. Private capital and innovative financing mechanisms are critical to ensure that Asia maintains its growth momentum as well as achieves its sustainable development goals.

Join us at this roundtable to learn about the most innovative financial products and instruments currently in the Asian market that aim to achieve social and environmental benefits alongside attractive market-rate returns. Hear insights from our latest report, “Financing the Future of Asia – Innovations in Sustainable Finance”, produced in partnership with FSG with support from the Rockefeller Foundation, and identify opportunities to engage more directly in this space.
