Taiwan SIF Introduction

In light of the intensifying climate change in recent years, the financial industry is facing an accelerated transition to a low-carbon, resilient, and inclusive economy. Furthermore, the United Nations is promoting sustainable investment finance and encouraging global efforts to address environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues. Therefore, the United Nations' initiatives and frameworks emphasize that integrating sustainability into financial decision-making is an urgent matter, and sustainable investment has become an important trend in global development.

In response to current international trends, the Taiwan Institute for Sustainable Energy (TAISE) is organizing the 4th Taiwan SIF (Taiwan Sustainable Investment Forum) to provide a platform for the government, enterprises, academia, and society to share best practices and explore innovative solutions. We believe that through cross-border cooperation at this forum, we can jointly promote the development of sustainable investment, encourage the Taiwanese financial industry to play a market role in achieving the common prosperity of economy, society, and environment, guide enterprises and investors to attach importance to ESG issues, and promote a positive cycle of triple win among investment, industry, and social environment.

The "Taiwan SIF" is an open and inclusive platform. We welcome participants from all over the world to share their experiences, insights, and ideas, and work together with you to create a more sustainable and prosperous future!
