About The Conference

THE JC3 FLAGSHIP CONFERENCE 2021

#FINANCEFORCHANGE

The implications of climate change on financial stability can no longer be ignored. The financial sector has both the responsibility and ability to improve its preparedness to manage the impacts of climate change, as well as mitigate environmental, social and governance risks while supporting the transition towards a low carbon economy through its products and services.

As part of its efforts to further engage and build industry capability, the JC3 will be hosting the JC3 Flagship Conference on 23-25 June 2021.

This virtual conference aims to accelerate sustainable development and catalyse action within all Financial Institutions (FI) in Malaysia as well as stakeholders in their value chain.

The Flagship Conference is anticipated anticipating to host over 1,000 FI participants, including board members, CEOs, senior management and practitioners, as well as FI clients, investees and other value chain players.

Who Should Attend and Why

The sustainable finance landscape is changing fast. Be part of the interactive discussions focused on environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) issues, to understand how they can provide a competitive advantage for Financial Institutions and the private sector.

Regulatory requirements related to responsible finance are accelerating. Find out what this means for Financial Institutions in Malaysia, and how this will affect companies seeking support from the financial sector.

Sustainable finance is complex, and different parties within the organisation play very different but critical roles. The #FinanceForChange conference is designed to zoom into specific roles and provide practical guidance for Banks, Asset Owners and Managers and Insurance Companies, as well as the various front and back office roles within each organisation.
