How can businesses and investors help solve the most fundamental challenges of sustainable development – and our future – while at the same time ensuring their own commercial success and fiduciary duty?
Innovations to solve Asia’s growing water, food and energy challenges are increasingly being driven through the development of smart cities. At our third BNP Paribas Sustainable Future Forum in Singapore, we will take a real life example of one such ambitious plan as the central paradigm of the agenda, debating once again the challenges and opportunities for Corporates and Investors that spring from the ever-increasing focus on sustainability and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
