Following on from the landmark launch of the ASEAN Climate Governance Network, and in collaboration with the Sustainable Finance Institute Asia, we are pleased to announce “Conversations on Climate Governance”, a series of 6 curated webinars focusing on spurring conversation on climate risk and the need to address it from a business perspective.

With experienced speakers drawn from the official, academia, and business sectors spanning various ASEAN Member States, these webinars will provide a better understanding of how climate issues are impacting all aspects of business.

Multinationals, listed companies, and SMEs alike are now seeing how climate not only affects short-term business goals, but also their long-term sustainability and survival. As captains of industry, climate factors now presents a real challenge, affecting everything from strategic decision-making to stakeholder management and cost of capital.

This series is designed to provide insights to business stewards and managers on strengthening their climate governance position and build context for the evolving landscape from an ASEAN perspective.

Sessions are free to participate and will be conducted virtually. Join us in building climate governance throughout ASEAN.
