Launch webinar of the ASEAN Sustainable Finance State of the Market 2022 report, along with a discussion of trends and opportunities in ASEAN thematic finance from local experts.

Climate Bonds is launching the fifth iteration of the ASEAN State of the Market report series, in collaboration with HSBC. The report scope has expanded and now describes the shape and size of the full thematic (or GSS+) debt universe: green, social, and sustainability (GSS) bond and loan markets, plus sustainability-linked bonds (SLBs) and sustainability-linked loans (SLLs) and transition bonds. The report also includes a summary and discussion of related topics covered in the spotlight sections, namely taxonomies, transition finance, and policy.

The presentation of key report findings will be followed by a panel discussion with local experts on ASEAN sustainable finance experience so far, and the opportunities ahead.

In order to protect a 1.5° future, world economies need to rapidly transition high emitting sectors to a net zero pathway. The cement industry is responsible for 8% of global emissions, but with the right policies, technologies, and financing, can transition to a net zero industry before 2050. On this edition of Climate Bonds Café, we talk with Transition Programme Policy Analyst Fabio Passaro about how Climate Bonds is providing policy guidance to facilitate the rapid, robust, and credible transition of the global cement industry towards a green future.
