Financing sustainable development in emerging markets
The 2030 deadline for the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is fast approaching but overall progress has been slow.
Emerging markets are on average further away from meeting the SDGs than developed nations. One of the most significant challenges is access to sufficient public and private sector financing that will enable companies to play a role in implementing a just transition.
This webinar in partnership with the Financial Times and Standard Chartered explored how corporations from emerging markets can finance a fairer future with progress towards their SDGs through more effective financing. The discussion also drew on how supporting inclusive economic expansion is also an opportunity for business growth.
With a particular focus on inclusive economic growth, climate action and resilient infrastructure, how are companies from emerging markets doing in terms of reaching the UN SDGs?
What is the role of the financial sector in partnering with businesses in emerging markets to advance the global sustainability agenda?
What are some examples of emerging market businesses that have successfully embedded and improved sustainability across their supply chains?
What are some of the biggest challenges when it comes to sustainable investment in emerging markets, and how can we solve for them?
Where do investors see the greatest opportunity for ESG investment in emerging markets by both geography and sector?
