The Islamic Sustainable Finance & Investment Forum, previously known as the IFN Green and Sustainable Finance Forum, will be held in Kuala Lumpur, the international center for Shariah sustainable and green finance. Supported by Co-host and Strategic Partner Capital Markets Malaysia, the hybrid forum will convene the industry’s most influential actors including practitioners, investors, and regulators in a meaningful engagement to further drive the sector forward.
The recent introduction of regulatory frameworks and initiatives promoting the development of sustainable finance across Southeast Asia has highlighted the significance and relevance of this important and fast-growing sector. With more corporates, financial institutions, government bodies and regulators becoming aware of Sustainable Development Goals, countries offering environments conducive for the growth of sustainable finance and investment will see tangible and long-term benefits.
The United Nations Commission on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) estimated that to adequately fund the 17 Sustainable Development Goals in developing countries, US$5 trillion to US$7 trillion will be required in annual investments by 2030. Fulfilling this ambitious financial requirement presents not only challenges, but also significant opportunities.
