  1. [Webinar] Sustainable Financing and Emissions Control

    In 2021, Singapore unveiled the Singapore Green Plan 2030 which is a nationwide movement to advance Singapore’s national agenda on sustainable development and features five key pillars: City in Nature, Sustainable Living, Energy Reset, Green Economy and Resilient Future. This but sets out a broad overview of the intended achievements. Alongside this, separately or otherwise, a number of laws, regulations and laws have evolved considerably, in Singapore as well as globally.

    In the webinar, we provide a broad overview on the climate and sustainable development goals of Singapore with reference to the Singapore Green Plan and parallel developments, and delve deeper into some important focus areas of the Singapore Green Plan – including sustainable financing, emissions control and carbon tax, and the evolution of carbon trading. Sustainable financing is important to drive sustainable projects and the first segment would discuss the key sustainable finance instruments available, the principles used in financing (including the LMA Green Loan Principles and the Sustainability Linked Loan Principles) and some of the practical issues encountered in such sustainable financing transactions.

    As we move into the second segment, we focus on emissions control and explore the front-end and back-end manners in which to manage this, touching on carbon pricing and carbon trading. The segment will also broadly discuss carbon sinks, carbon tax and carbon credits and the impact on the various industries in relation to emissions control.
