Event Details

Multinational corporates are grappling with challenges in the design and execution of a roadmap for the reduction of so called Scope 3 emissions* in their Asia Pacific operations.


SwedCham has invited DBS Bank for this in-person event to share their insights on currently available enablers to bring capacity, incentive, visibility and measurement, targeted at corporate supply chains and to accelerate de-carbonisation. Complementing this, Climate Impact X, Singapore's first voluntary carbon exchange, will showcase how Singapore now offers a platform/marketplace for the creation and access to quality carbon offsets and trading as an instrumental pillar to help businesses in their sustainability transition to a low carbon economy.
