The Asia-Pacific region generates more than half of global emissions and is forecast to be responsible for circa 80% of incremental energy demand up to 2050. What happens in this region therefore is going to be pivotal to the next stage of global sustainability and our chances of mitigating the more extreme impacts of climate change. The transition to a low carbon economy also provides unparalleled growth and investment opportunities for the region, on both the demand and supply side of the transition.
Simultaneously, COVID-19 has also accelerated the transition in so many other critical trends in the sustainability spectrum, sparking reformist zeal not only in government policies in critical markets like China but also a universal drive to abolish exploitive global human rights abuses such as modern slavery. This COVID-19 driven acceleration has also amplified market and investment opportunities in key areas industries as healthcare, wellbeing and food and nutrition.
Join our experts and global thought leaders as they discuss the key trends shaping the next horizon for ESG in Asia Pacific
