  • Harmonising the EU Taxonomy with Asian Markets Recorded: Aug 30 2019 64 mins
    Rebecca Wright (AIGCC), Will Martindale (PRI), Sebastien Godinot (WWF), Guo Peiyuan (China SIF)
    AIGCC, along with the Asia Sustainable Finance Initiative (ASFI), PRI and WWF, are providing investors in Asia the opportunity to hear about the developments and harmonisation efforts of the EU Taxonomy as well as insight into similar developments in China.

    The EU Technical Expert Group on Sustainable Finance, set up by the Commission in July 2018, has launched a call for feedback on their Report on Taxonomy published on 18 June 2019.

    It is another important step related to the EU's Action Plan on financing sustainable growth, published in March 2018. The expert group’s report follows on the Commission's May 2018 legislative proposal on an EU taxonomy.

    With the present call for feedback, the expert group asks for technical input on its Report on Taxonomy. Stakeholders are invited to comment on the proposed activities identified by the expert group that contribute substantially to climate change mitigation and adaptation, and the proposed technical screening criteria. They are also called to answer questions on the usability and future development of the taxonomy.

    While the Taxonomy would apply to funds regulated in the EU, the EU has asked the Technical Expert Group to consider the international dimension wherever possible, and pledged to support the development of international taxonomies. As such, this webinar is designed to articulate the Asian perspective to the EU Taxonomy and is aimed to support the harmonisation efforts between Asian and EU markets.

  • Demystifying agricultural supply chains and related deforestation risks Recorded: Jul 2 2019 64 mins
    Andre Vasconcelos and Chris Hart, Global Canopy; Danielle Carreira, PRI; Luiz Amaral, WRI; Rodrigo Spuri, TNC
    Join our webinar where WRI, TNC and Global Canopy will provide an overview of the tools that companies and financial institutions are using to better understand their exposure to the risks linked to unsustainable land use.

    These tools include: Trase, Agroideal, Global Forest Watch PRO and SCRIPT Portfolio Risk Tool.

    The agriculture sector alone uses 70 per cent of the world’s fresh water supply and 50 per cent of total habitable land, while the food sector, including agriculture, processing, manufacturing and distribution is responsible for up to thirty per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions.

    Increasing rates of deforestation and land conversion linked to the production of commodities such as soy, cattle and palm oil have caused major impacts on local communities, climate, soil, water and biodiversity putting the future of the global economy under major threat as many essential economic activities depend, directly or indirectly of the existence of healthy forests.

    However, lack of transparency and traceability in soft commodities supply chains make risks linked to deforestation complex and difficult to monitor. To overcome this challenge, a number of organisations are coming forward with innovative tools.

    Speakers:
    - Andre Vasconcelos and Chris Hart, Global Canopy (Oxford)
    - Danielle Carreira, PRI (London)
    - Luiz Amaral, WRI (Sao Paulo)
    - Rodrigo Spuri, TNC (Sao Paulo)
