Impact Investing for Climate Resilience and Sustainable Development Goals - 01 Dec 2023

Asia is home to 60% of the world’s population and contributes to more than 50% of greenhouse gases globally. The Asian Development Bank further estimates that $1.7 trillion per year will need to be invested in infrastructure in developing markets between 2016-2030 to maintain growth momentum and meet the sustainable development goals. 

Private sector finance is critical to channeling the trillions of dollars needed for the significant social and environmental challenges faced by Asia. Singapore is accelerating solutions to the region’s challenges by scaling sustainable finance through multilateral cooperation. However, the urgent question is, how do we rapidly scale-up the pace and impact?

Join AIA Group, Temasek and Leapfrog Investments to explore the next frontier of impact investing in Asia – combining the prospect of financial returns while delivering positive impact to advance the sustainable development goals. AIA and Temasek have invested US$200mn and US500mn respectively into impact funds run by LeapFrog, a recognised global impact investment leader and the discussion will focus on unlocking the resources of the private sector to accelerate change in Asia’s developing economies.
