About the Webinar

The finance sector has an important role in driving more responsible sustainable business practices to advance positive social and human rights impacts in the fight against climate change, environmental degradation and social inequalities whilst making supply chains more resilient and sustainable. In the current Covid-19 pandemic, there is also an urgent need for the finance sector to engage with governments, businesses, investors and civil society to work collectively to protect people and jobs, and to work towards a sustainable recovery pathway. This webinar will discuss the role of the finance sector in driving more responsible business practices and investments in support of a sustainable and inclusive post-COVID recovery, as well as in reducing social inequalities. In this webinar, Dr Youngho Chang will speak on “Credit Guarantee Scheme and Start-up Businesses: Financial Pipelines and Successful Start-ups in South East Asia”,  Mr Sylvain Augoyard will speak on the “Role of Central Banks and Regulators, and How Finance can be a Force for Good”, and Dr Sukich Udindu will look into efforts at “Financing the Sustainable Business in Thailand”. Dr Cassey Lee is the moderator of the session.

This webinar series is jointly organised by ISEAS – Yusof Ishak Institute and The Sasakawa Peace Foundation.
