Webinar “Tokyo: Accelerating the Momentum for Transition Finance” will be held on December 7th.
7 NOVEMBER 2022News
As the world moves to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement, transition finance — a new approach spearheaded by Japan — offers a way to fund the massive investments that high-emitting industries need to transition to net-zero. Now Tokyo, the heart of Japan’s formidable industrial base and its Asia-wide supply chains, is emerging as a hub for transition finance. Already, Japanese issuers have sold more than US$2 billion in transition bonds, about 40 per cent of the global total. In this webinar, a panel of experts will analyse what transition finance means for businesses and investors across Asia and how this new instrument might evolve into the future.
