UNEP FI’s biennial Regional Roundtable for Asia Pacific, part of its major five regional event series on sustainable finance, will showcase the cutting-edge responses from the Asia Pacific region to the emerging global trends in ESG. Held under the theme of “Acceleration of Sustainable Finance in Asia Pacific”, the event will welcome over 700 finance professionals to deepen insight into leading market practice in areas such as financing the net zero transition, Sustainable Development Goals and the blue economy as well as cutting edge thinking on environmental liability insurance. The Roundtable will also be the platform for the premier launch of the new UNEP FI Impact Analysis Tools for Investment Portfolios & Real Estate as well as a study on physical risks of climate change for property.
