The launch webinar will see discussion of report findings and prospects for growth in green finance and green sukuk investment in Malaysia and the region.
The role of infrastructure in Malaysia is critical to promoting sustainable economic growth, improving regional connectivity, and achieving low-carbon climate solutions in the country. Climate change has already had significant adverse impacts on Malaysia, including increased annual surface temperature and rainfall, sea level rise, and other extreme weather events. The country has also witnessed the depletion of natural resources and an increase of greenhouse gases (GHGs) due to intense energy consumption for its rapid growth. Thus, the significant scaling-up of investment in green infrastructure is critical for Malaysia to meet its climate commitments, build resilience to the impacts of climate change and achieve rapid economic development.
With this backdrop, the Climate Bonds Initiative, in partnership with the Securities Commission Malaysia (SCM) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB) is launching the Green Infrastructure Investment Opportunities (GIIO) Malaysia* report. The report aims to highlight green investment opportunities in Malaysia and to support the country’s transition to a low carbon economy. This webinar aims to facilitate greater engagement on this topic between project owners and developers, and institutional investors. Green infrastructure and corresponding green finance instruments are explored in the report, with sector-by-sector investment options presented.
