The United Nations Commission on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) recently estimated that in order to adequately fund the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in developing countries, US$5 trillion to US$7 trillion will be required in annual investments by 2030. Fulfilling this ambitious financial requirement presents not only challenges, but also significant opportunities.
 
The recent introduction of regulatory frameworks and initiatives promoting the development of sustainable finance across Southeast Asia has highlighted the significance and relevance of this important and fast-growing sector. With more corporates, financial institutions, government bodies and regulators becoming aware of Sustainable Development Goals, countries offering environments conducive for the growth of sustainable finance and investment will see tangible and long-term benefits.
