The IIF and the Association of Banks in Singapore (ABS) were delighted to host a IIF Climate Finance Workshop. Tailored and timed for an Asian audience, this virtual event featured panel discussions with leading executives and experts on the changing policy and regulatory backdrop and the rapidly evolving landscape for ESG disclosure and data standards.

The workshop also featured a special presentation by the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF) on how to measure “financed emissions” in financial firms’ investment and lending portfolios.
