S$1.8 Billion into Climate Investment, Allocated to 5 Asset Managers

Singapore | Leading Financial Centre in Asia

The S$1.8 billion (US$ 1.36 billion) climate investment allocated to 5 Asset Managers will help to enhance the climate resilience of the central bank’s official foreign reserve, attract sustainability-focused asset managers to Singapore and catalyse funding towards environmentally sustainable projects in Asia and beyond.  

The asset management firms appointed under the Green Investment Programme (GIP) will also establish their Asia Pacific sustainability hubs in Singapore and launch new ESG thematic funds for the Asia Pacific region.  MAS will also expect its external fund managers to be more active stewards of the companies they invest in, particularly on climate-related matters.

At the end of May 2021, Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) reported official foreign reserves of S$398 billion.

 

Ravi Menon Managing Director Monetary Authority of Singapore
Monetary Authority of Singapore Managing Director, Ravi Menon:

“ The climate crisis demands urgent collective action to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The world is probably on the cusp of the greatest economic and societal transformation since the Industrial Revolution.  The coming green revolution will involve all segments of the economy and society – governments, businesses, and individuals will all need to do their part. Everyone must contribute.  Every bit counts.

It is in this spirit of collective action that MAS is publishing a sustainability report, to account for what we are doing together with the financial industry, and in our own right, to help remake a greener world and secure a more sustainable future.  We want to be the change we want to see.”

 

2016 Paris Agreement, 195 Countries

Paris, France

In 2016, 195 countries resolved as part of the Paris Agreement to avoid the most severe effects of climate change, global greenhouse gas emissions must come down 45% by 2030 and reach net zero around 2050 to keep global warming to within 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.

 

The Rise of ESG & Sustainable Investment, $2.1 trillion AUM

Electric Car

The world is emphasising the importance of ESG, Sustainable Investments, Responsible Investing and Impact Investing to tackle challenges planet earth is facing such as climate change, rising water-level, flood, pollution, waste, green energy, renewables, natural resource management, human rights, bribery, corruption, health, safety, corporate governance and shareholder protection.

There are many global initiatives including United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment, IFC Operating Principles for Impacting Management, Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) and Global Steering Group for Impact Investment (GSGII). The latest being the Net-Zero Asset Owner Alliance for institutional investors to achieve net zero GHG emissions by 2050.

The market size for ESG & Sustainable Investment is also growing with International Finance Corporation (World Bank Group) reporting $2.1 trillion Assets under Management (AUM) for impact investing in private markets, with $505 billion clearly measured for its impact (development impact and financial returns) in its 2020 Growing Impact Report. In the 10th edition of the 2020 Annual Impact Investor Survey, Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) finds the $715 billion impact investing market maturing, even amid the worldwide pandemic.
