Ecosystm supported by their partner EY, conducted an invitation-only Executive ThinkTank at the Point Zero Forum in Zurich. A select group of regulators, investors, technology providers, and senior leaders from financial institutions from across the globe came together to share their insights and experiences on the practicability, regulatory support, and implications of sustainable finance portfolios.

Here are some of the key takeaways from the ThinkTank.

  1. The Barriers to a Sustainable Future. The first step towards a sustainable future is recognising the challenges organisations face when pursuing Net Zero targets. Often, Net Zero targets are looked upon as additional costs.
  2. Overcoming the Challenges. It is important to connect Net Zero back to business goals, given that there might be sudden shifts in regulations and because of the emergence of environment-conscious consumers.
  3. A Sustainable Future Requires a Collaborative Approach. Global governments, regulators, Financial Services institutions, other enterprises, and technology providers need to collaborate on building a sustainable future.
  4. A Time for Simplification. Clear mandates on reporting climate aspects similar to how financial aspects are reported, will result in greater adoption of sustainability and ESG measures.
  5. The Role of Digital Architecture. The path to a Net Zero, decarbonised world will be technology-led.

No ratings yet.

A partner event of our annual flagship Singapore FinTech Festival, Point Zero Forum represents a unique collaboration between Elevandi (an entity set up by MAS), and the Swiss Secretariat for International Finance (SIF), organised in cooperation with the BIS Innovation Hub, Monetary Authority of Singapore, and Swiss National Bank. The inaugural Forum will be graced by Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister, Heng Swee Keat, Switzerland’s Federal Councillor and the Head of the Federal Department of Finance, Ueli Maurer, as well as leading CEOs (UBS, Julius Baer, Six Group); and innovative founders (FTX Group, wefox). The Forum will serve as the starting point for engaging investors and policymakers with innovators to advance the future of financial services (FOFS). 

This invite-only forum aims to bring together investors, influencers, thinkers and decision-makers from the public and private sector to exchange ideas, share knowledge, develop a network, with the purpose of:

  • Developing new ideas to advance the FOFS – decentralised finance and Web 3.0, embedded finance and sustainable finance.
  • Driving investment activity by bringing together leading founders with VCs, private banking clients, family offices and PE houses
  • Dissecting regulatory considerations related to each FOFS development by bringing together public and private sector leaders

Three days of in-depth plenary sessions, deep-dive private roundtables and workshops, and exclusive sessions will focus on significant new market opportunities built on Web 3.0 architecture (June 22) – Tokenisation (June 23) and Sustainable Finance (June 23).

Ecosystm ThinkTank: Risks and Opportunities of Net Zero Committments and Decarbonisation Pathways is a closed door and confidential dialogue for a very limited number of hand-selected participants.

ESG is increasingly becoming an area of focus and Net Zero Commitments have taken centre stage across all industries. With the ‘Net Zero Intent’ gaining traction, questions around practicability, regulatory support and implications sustainable finance portfolios remain unanswered.

This ThinkTank will aim to find answers and solutions to further foster Net Zero commitments and to build practical decarbonisation pathways. Topics to address will include:

  • What are the decarbonising pathways for lending, underwriting or other products? And what are the best practices in eliminate ‘Net Zero Laggards’ from financial portfolios?
  • What support is needed from policymakers to support Net Zero execution?
  • How do governments and financial institutions engage with high emitters that are key pillars to the economy?

The 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26, that was held in Glasgow in 2021, highlighted the need to mobilise public and private sector finance to support global net-zero emissions targets and to protect communities and habitats.

Sustainable Finance and Green Bonds present opportunities for lenders, investors, and borrowers. It allows borrowers to obtain funding at decreased and competitive costs. And as investor demands continue to rise, Government institutions have expressed keen interest in issuing green bonds to support ecologically beneficial initiatives. 

Here are some recent global announcements.

  • France announces the issuance of USD 4 billion green bond sale.
  • Germany raises USD 4 billion in green bonds to finance green expenditures and investments.
  • Singapore sets a roadmap for its first sovereign green bond with the Singapore Green Bond Framework.
  • Austria launches its first green bond.
  • The UK launches an inquiry into the role of the financial sector in the country’s net zero transition.
