Transitioning to a low-carbon economy: what can the financial sector do?
Event on 2015-11-24 17:00:00
The Climate Finance Day, Paris, in May highlighted a number of private sector initiatives which support a transition towards a low carbon future and the UN objective to limit the rise of global temperatures to 2°C by the end of the century. This is an important year for climate change as parties work towards a global climate deal which will be negotiated in December at COP21, Paris. This event will bring these issues to light and help identify opportunities for the financial sector in Singapore in the transition to a low carbon economy. Join us for this interactive event, the opportunity to share your ideas and experiences, and to hear from experts in the field.
