   This Year's Theme   
ACHIEVING A SUSTAINABLE ASEAN:
Raising Business SDG Ambitions and Mainstreaming Sustainable Financing
GOESG Laptop Mockup 2.jpg

As the global economy is recovering from the pandemic, this is the opportunity to institutionalize sustainable actions that will enable ASEAN to play a leadership role in sustainable development.

 

With the growing ESG conscious behaviour demanded of businesses, ASEAN private sector must reimagine and adapt their strategies, structures, and processes to future-proof themselves to inevitable sustainability risks such as climate change. But with risks, there is always an opportunity, and these business actors must realise the potential USD1trillion green economy for ASEAN, with sustainable financing being a key value differentiator.

 

This year’s 2-day summit will provide deeper insights and showcase best practice actions from ASEAN and global leaders on raising SDG ambition, pathways of achieving them, and opportunities in closing the financing gap. Day 2 will feature the UNGC ASEAN Sustainable Finance Forum focusing on various sustainable financing topics in the region.
