28 Aug Getting Green Finance to work in Singapore – Generating demand and incentives
Asia’s financial community has a long way to go to tackle climate change but there are signs that this is evolving. Asian investors are developing an appetite for products such as low-carbon indices. Others are becoming more sophisticated, exhibiting a strong demand in areas such as long-term project bonds issuance.
For instance, in early August 2017, PT Paiton Energy, Indonesia’s second largest independent power producer, took in US$9 billion in orders for its US$2 billion two-tranche issue. The bonds consists of US$1.2 billion 13-year notes and US$800 million 20-year notes. Asian investors accounted for nearly half the investors.
To understand the current baseline and how we can get Asian investors more interested in “green”, the SIIA is organizing the 3rd Green Finance Working Group Meeting titled “Getting Green Finance to work in Singapore – Generating demand and incentives”. This event is part of the series of green finance discussions under the “Collaborative Initiative for Green Finance in Singapore”.
