APAC Sustainable Finance Conference 2021

Together, a force for success

APAC Sustainable Finance Conference 2021

The transportation sector can be almost fully decarbonised by 2040.

How can we achieve this even sooner?

Assets in sustainable mutual funds and exchange-traded funds have reached USD 1.2 trillion in 2020.

Putting to rest the myth that sustainable investing compromises returns.

Environmental, social and governance issues and investment opportunities topics are dominating the agenda of policymakers, corporations and investors globally. Sustainability-related news is making headlines on a daily basis. Central banks and regulators are encouraging companies to adopt ESG into their business strategy.

At UBS, we reimagine the power of people and capital, to create a better world for all of us – a world that’s fair, sustainable and gives everyone the opportunity to thrive. To show our commitment towards sustainability, in 2020 we decided to make sustainable investments our preferred solution to private clients investing globally because collectively, we have to reinvent the way we invest.

UBS is proud to feature Asian and global thought leaders in sustainability at our Sustainable Finance Conference 2021. The conference is a call to action to our clients and investors, comprising Asia’s most successful entrepreneurs and businesses, with the financial ability to not only be part of this change, but also be a driver and a positive influence in the industry and community.

Together, we can be a force for success.
