[Webinar] Driving Net Zero Transition - Sustainable Finance Taxonomy
The Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero has gathered +500 financial intuitions to pledge to become net-zero by 2050. Financial institutions need to reduce their Scope 3 financed emissions and one of the ways to achieve so is to expand the financial portfolio with more low-carbon projects.
In 2019, EU has passed the Taxonomy Regulation, requiring corporate and financial market participants to disclose the alignment against the EU Taxonomy (“EUT”) which may have an impact to the Asian market and financial institutions.
The seminar aims to help the financial market participants gain relevant knowledge about EUT and know the latest development of Asian taxonomies.
By the end of the seminar, participants will:
• Understand why financial professionals need to learn about EUT
• Know the relevant concepts and terms used in EUT
• Become aware of recent taxonomy-related developments in Asia
• Gain information about how the taxonomy can be incorporated in a firm’s strategy towards climate transition
Topics to be covered:
• Objectives and benefits of the application of EUT
• Structure and key components of the EUT
• Sharing of application by corporates and financial institutions
• The emergence of Asian taxonomies and its implications to the Asian financial markets
