About The Forum
With over US$30 trillion poured into green and sustainable investments in 2019, it is clear that investing for the common good has become an integral feature of the global finance industry. Resonating with the DNA of Islamic finance, the themes of sustainability and green continue to gain prominence within the realm of Islamic finance, with industry stalwarts such as Malaysia, Indonesia and the UAE taking the lead with pioneering and landmark offerings.
The 3rd IFN Green and Sustainable Finance Forum will again be held in Kuala Lumpur, the international center for Shariah sustainable and green finance. Supported by local regulators and multilateral stakeholders, the Forum will convene the industry’s most influential actors including practitioners, investors, and regulators in a meaningful engagement to further drive the sector forward.
An Introduction to 2021
At REDmoney, 2020 taught us much about the state of the events business. What works, what doesn’t and how to continue delivering unparalleled programs to our global audience.
It’s a fundamental element of our business going forward, and we will continue to adapt to ensure we remain relevant and our events remain the industry’s best.
The global appetite and requirements for converging has shifted and now more than ever, we are strategically planning our events to adapt to these changes in the face of disruption without compromising on the quality of knowledge transfer and outreach.
Technological advancements have given rise to exciting opportunities in developing new formats that allows unlimited real time interaction remotely.
Moving forward, we will deliver a blend of physical and online events, ensuring the best of both worlds. Physical interaction is important to many, whilst travel and time away from the office isn’t always necessary to reach new markets.
For 2021, through careful research and planning, we have curated bespoke events online and offline with your interest in mind.

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.
