AmCham Joint Luncheon: CSR and Business Growth with Low Carbon Strategy by Green Bond

There are just only fifteen years left for keeping global average temperatures “well below” 2°C above preindustrial levels. Paris Agreement of UNFCCC, which is effective last November, will drive the transformation of doing business in a low carbon mode. The financial sector and capital market play vital roles for supporting the low carbon economy.

On April 20, AmCham CSR Committee & Sustainable Development Committee held “CSR and Business Growth with Low Carbon Strategy Supported by Green Bond” at the Grand Hyatt Taipei. The speaker Niven Huang, General Manager, KPMG Sustainability Consulting Co., Ltd., introduced the fact & trend of emerging green bond and other vital worldwide signals of low carbon transformation.

As the growth of corporate green bonds is expected to continue and play an important role in the economy, Dr. Niven Huang addressed the pathway of embedding climate change issue into CSR actions and business strategy. While several green bonds were issued by well-known companies in the last several years, there is a lack of consensus in green bond standards. Strengthening green bond standards will be necessary to help build trust and confidence, as well attract more investors for environmental projects.
