Towards a low-carbon economy [fr]
On Friday 17 June, the European Union Delegation in Singapore, the French and other member states’ embassies hosted a breakfast talk on making a low-carbon economy profitable for all.
Keeping the momentum of the Paris climate conference (COP 21) going, the event - attended by more than 100 professionals - looked at profitability for business and the role that the financial sector can play in the transition.
Panel discussions brought together high-profile actors from both the public and private sectors to exchange views on the Singapore and the regional context.Whether we will have a smooth transition or a revolution, it is clear that climate change needs to be tackled across industries.
