Networking Tea Break
Panel Discussion One:
Scaling Impact for the Earth
Most public companies’ directors don’t see sustainability issues as board relevant. Many investors are making it clear that they want sustainability issues addressed and they are not satisfied with simple disclosure of climate change and want their corporate boards to embed sustainability and climate considerations into their decision making. What should be on the board’s sustainability agenda, major opportunities and support the board should give for long term sustainable value creation, closing the gap between what the board thinks they are doing, and the reality.

Session Three: Climate Financing
Unlocking Capital to Prevent Climate Change and Environmental Degradation
Climate change, environmental degradation, and biodiversity loss present an existential threat to modern civilisation. However, because the effects manifest over generational timescales, the present generation has limited incentives to address the threats. In the financial sector, institutional investors are becoming aware of environmental and climate change risks, and more willing to act. However, this awareness in the Asia Pacific region has relatively low engagement.
The session introduces an overview of the science, an articulation of the global policy response, a survey of technological approaches to the problems, and an outline of the various financial entities and resources involved in addressing the issue.
Jean-Marc Champagne, Head of Environmental Finance, WWF Hong Kong
Session Four: Bridging Sectors
Bridging Sectors: Driving Change through SDGs Implementation
The more coalitions taking place across sectors, the greater the extent towards potential actions against climate change and sustainability issues, and corporates will be ready to integrate SDGs into medium and long term strategies. It is essential to establish coalition across sectors, especially between competitors, so it’s easier to solve industry-wide sustainability problems and address priority challenges. Discover how other companies take the lead if you haven’t taken the dive?
