Our Participation and Convening Role

Our annual Ecosperity Conference, first held in 2014, promotes the twinning of ecology and prosperity for sustainable growth. It brings together key decision makers to share insights and best practices on sustainable development.

Our annual Ecosperity Week in 2023, themed “Breakthroughs for Net Zero”, drew over 3,000 participants. Joining in-person and online, attendees deep dived into solutions and levers to fast- track decarbonisation, enable net zero cities, and finance Asia’s net zero transition. The event also saw the launch of the 2023 Southeast Asia’s Green Economy Report, which was written in collaboration with Bain & Company, GenZero, and Amazon Web Services. The report provided a stocktake of Southeast Asia’s green economy, and included insights into challenges and mechanisms to accelerate climate progress in the region.

We organised the inaugural Impact Investing Roundtable with the Centre for Impact Investing and Practices in 2023. Held on the sidelines of Ecosperity Week, the roundtable centred on discussions on driving inclusive growth in emerging markets to enable collective action in impact.

Ecosperity Week 2024 was a milestone edition, as we marked the platform’s 10th anniversary. Themed “Renewing Our Vibrant Spring”,  the event saw more than 3,000 in-person and online participants, as well as over 20 partners, across diverse sectors convening to discuss ways  to translate climate commitments into action. The need to protect and restore nature featured high on the agenda, alongside the role of philanthropic capital and blended finance in bridging the climate finance gap. We also launched the fifth edition of the Southeast Asia’s Green Economy Report at the conference. It highlights immediate and high-impact investment areas, and how key accelerators such as green policies, incentives, and regional collaboration can accelerate the region’s green transition. We continued to host the Impact Investing Roundtable, with a thematic focus on climate investing in emerging markets in 2024.

As part of our ongoing Ecosperity Conversations series, Temasek hosted various panel discussions at Climate Week NYC and COP28. The sessions provided insights on accelerating energy transition and decarbonisation in emerging markets, innovative solutions for climate finance deployment, and pathways to decarbonise the agri-food system.

Moving forward, we seek to further leverage Ecosperity to partner like-minded organisations in advocating for systems-level change on areas aligned with our institutional sustainability priorities. Such initiatives range from accelerating decarbonisation in hard-to-abate sectors, to strengthening corporate adoption of carbon credits and scaling transition financing in emerging markets and developing economies.

Together with Temasek Trust, GenZero, and Conservation International, we were a strategic partner for The Earthshot Prize Awards Ceremony and the inaugural Earthshot Week, held in Singapore in 2023. Established by Prince William in 2020, the Prize seeks to discover and scale innovative solutions to tackle the planet’s biggest environmental challenges. The Singapore edition saw more than 1,500 participants, including global leaders and youths, coming together across various events and engagements that spotlighted sustainable solutions, including those fit for Asia.

Finally, we took part in ISSB’s COP28 Declaration of Support. As part of the ISSB Investor Advisory Group, we committed to advance the ISSB’s global baseline for consistent and comparable climate-related disclosures.
