World Bank Group (WBG) Global Knowledge and Research Hub Malaysia and World Wildlife Fund are jointly hosting a forum on Sustainable Finance on October 2, 2018 (Tuesday) at Sasana Kijang, Kuala Lumpur. The sustainable finance is a key to materialize the implementation of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and for countries to achieve their targets in nationally determined contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Climate Agreement. According to the United Nation Development Programme (UNDP), the World will require technical assistance and financial supports between US$5 trillion and US$7 trillion each year for the next 15 years to materialize the 17 SDGs.
The Sustainable Finance Forum will gather market actors, including the financial regulators, banks institutional investors, policy makers and practitioners from various jurisdictions, to share their experiences in incorporating ESG criteria into their investment and business processes and their approaches to responsible and sustainable investments.
The aim of this discussion is to identify best-practices as well as relevant policy options for an enhanced and expanded incorporation of sustainability and responsible investments criteria within the financial and banking sectors.
Similarly, the event will provide an opportunity for participants to learn about the recently published guide for impact reporting for green and sukuk bonds, particularly for sovereign issuers. This will allow participants to learn how the World Bank assists sovereign issuers overcome and manage the challenges for reporting on impact and performance of green and sukuk bonds.
