To date, over 120 asset managers responsible for $43 trillion in assets have pledged to achieve carbon neutral investment strategies by 2050 or sooner. With COP26 placing a focus on sustainable investing, it is crucial for Asia to lead the way in ESG adoption and green finance, as the region is expected to drive more than two-thirds of global new energy demand over the next 20 years. As a result, the finance sector is expected to play a crucial role in achieving global net-zero targets.
With mounting interest in green finance, the finance sector must also be able to provide robust, consistent data on corporate sustainability performance both for itself and for its clients.
In this webinar, ADEC ESG Solutions is joined by CohnReznick and Sandpiper Communications to discuss the upcoming ESG trends for the finance sector in APAC and how organizations can adapt and implement ESG practices to position themselves as thought-leaders and support responsible growth.
The webinar will cover topics such as:
► Global and regional ESG drivers shaping the finance sector
► Which ESG trends are becoming widely adopted and common practice
► Near-future outlook: rising ESG trends and drivers
► The importance of data trackability, data integrity, and structured reporting systems
► Potential data implications of new ESG initiatives
► How and why companies are adopting these practices in a post-COVID world
We will then open up the discussion to you, to hear and answer your questions about ESG in the APAC finance sector.
Join the panel on 15th December at 1pm (Sydney) / 10am (Hong Kong).
