Transitioning to a zero-carbon economy remains one of the greatest challenges we face.
The 2nd Webinar in our regional series will explore opportunities for transition finance in Asia-Pacific.
An expert panel will discuss the features of a transition label & its future role in regional climate finance markets & investment opportunities for Asia-Pac economies.
Reaching clear definitions on Transition Finance that are ambitious, inclusive, and flexible will help mobilise capital to support transition-based investment. The core principles behind Climate Bonds 'Financing Credible Transitions" whitepaper released in late 2020 will also be explored.
