    Islamic finance plays an important role.

Secondly, to provide and channel investment from Shariah compliant asset managers and institutional investors to such initiatives.

    IFN Green & Sustainable Finance Forum 2020 will be a one-day event which will focus on the opportunities presented by the growth of ethical, sustainable and responsible finance to the Islamic banking, finance and investment industry in Southeast Asia and beyond.

    Through a series of engaging keynotes, interviews and panels, the forum will explore how Islamic and sustainable finance can become more closely interlinked, and how Shariah compliant financial institutions and asset managers can play a greater role towards the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals, including the alleviation of disease and reduction of global displacement.

    It will also examine how the Islamic finance industry can, through effective guidance and funding, help facilitate the development of key, strategic sectors, including education, healthcare, housing and agriculture.
