University Essentials: Climate Change and Green Finance in APAC

Thursday, March 18, 2021
60 minutes

The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to leave lasting scars around the globe, and the Asia-Pacific region, is no exception, with GDP recovery trends and earnings expected to extend into 2023. The economic disruption has thrust ESG issues in the spotlight, with the intersection of climate-related events, from persistent floods and droughts, to devastating wildfires, prompting a significant paradigm shift on ESG and climate change among consumers and corporations, alike.
Join us for an interactive discussion with S&P Global Trucost expert, Michael Salvatico, and notable Academics and for an analysis on current challenges, insights on economic recovery, through the lens of transformative opportunities – how the financial system can play a critical role to align environmental, social, and corporate governance and what creating resilience may look within the region, broadly.

Attendees will gain insight into the following:

  • Trends and dominant ESG issues in Asia-Pacific
  • An exploration of data evidence of ESG impact on returns, methodology and research
  • And analysis and discussion of current trends and shifts in public perception of ESG, from political and social activism with organization interest in more equitable, ethical, risk-avoidant policies
  • Insights on creating resilience for APAC – climate change, institutional vestments and more
