How can businesses and investors help solve the most fundamental challenges of sustainable development – and our future – while at the same time ensuring their own commercial success and fiduciary duty?
Innovations to solve Asia’s growing water, food and energy challenges are increasingly being driven through the development of smart cities.
At our third BNP Paribas Sustainable Future Forum in Singapore, we took a real life example of one such ambitious plan as the central paradigm of the agenda, debating once again the challenges and opportunities for Corporates and Investors that spring from the ever-increasing focus on sustainability and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We are honoured to welcome the Chief Minister of India’s Andhra Pradesh, H.E Mr. Chandrababu Naidu, at our Singapore conference to explore the Amaravati Sustainable Capital City Development Project, along with other distinguished speakers representing the world’s leading companies including:
|APG Asset Management Asia||Green Finance Committee of China||Solar Impulse|
|Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB)||Mercer||Green Indian State Trust (GIST) Advisory|
|Asian Venture Philanthropy Network (AVPN)||Milken Institute||The Pentland Centre for Sustainable Business|
|BlackRock||Pan Pacific Hotel Group||The Women’s Foundation|
|Blue Like an Orange Sustainable Capital||Plastic Oceans Foundation||Tobacco Free Portfolios|
|Business Council of Australia||Responsible Investment Association Australasia||United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)|
|CLP Holdings||Robeco Asset Management||Veolia|
|Earth on Board||Room to Read||World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD)|
|Environmental Resources Management (ERM)||RS Group|
What differentiates the BNP Paribas Sustainable Future Forum event from an increasingly crowded calendar of ESG-focused events:
- It is exclusively for our senior clients, by invitation only
- It provides both the strategic vision and inspiration for a sustainable future, as well as the practical roadmap and solutions
- Opportunities for one on one issuer-investor meetings, for qualified professional investors
- Now in its third year in Singapore, the event is supported by SFF editions around the world, providing both the Asia Pacific and global perspective
- It segues into an evening at the BNP Paribas WTA Finals, providing unique hospitality and networking opportunities
