Scaling Domestic Climate Philanthropy in India

Climate Action Series

Existing climate finance volumes are insufficient to meet the current climate goals in India, and will need to be supplemented with budget revenue, international climate finance and private investments. AVPN will convene a series of events to galvanise more action in the philanthropic sector within the region.

SUSTAINABILITY DIALOGUE SERIES

Surfacing cutting edge solutions and sustainable business practices

Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) is a concept familiar with most businesses and financers and its importance is expected to continue growing as Asian governments are setting up national plans, ambitions and regulations for a low-carbon future as part of the Paris Agreement and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
