The UN says greater emphasis should be placed on de-carbonizing heavy industry and supporting SME’s through this transition. Rapidly developing Asian nations must meet their UN commitments while allocating funding to reboot their economies in a slow COVID recovery period. How will Asian governments, investors and the banking sector approach this challenge and the further development of ‘green investment’ which for many in Asia region is a novelty? How will they & financial institutions support innovation for a green transformation? What are the stumbling blocks & near term opportunities?
