FT Climate Finance Asia Summit

21st November 2018 | Hong Kong, China – More





Asia occupies a special place in the global fight against climate change, and in the efforts of investors and financiers to mitigate and help adapt to its many potential effects. China’s grand plan for green economic growth is unprecedented anywhere in the world, with the country taking leadership positions in renewable investment, carbon finance, batteries and sustainable transport. India’s ability, meanwhile to wean itself from fossil fuels and on to a low-carbon growth trajectory through proposed multi-trillion pound investments in renewables, infrastructure, green buildings and smart agriculture will be critical to global efforts to reduce carbon emissions. And elsewhere, in developing Asia, the full weight and ingenuity of the world’s capital markets will be needed to find innovative ways to finance the prevention and adaptation to the devastating damage caused by extreme, climate-inflicted extreme weather events to which many countries in Asia are particularly vulnerable. Seizing Asia growing green finance opportunity is good for business, essential for the planet.

The inaugural FT Climate Finance Asia Summit brings together leading Asia companies, investors and financiers to explore the developing trends and emerging opportunities in Asia’s low-carbon transition – from the rise of sustainable investment in Asia to challenges of translating Nationally Determined Commitments (NDCs ) into projects  and the growth of green bonds as an important new source of finance for companies across the region.
