Private equity makes a pitch for decarbonising Asia

In Asia, an estimated USD 37 trillion is needed to fund the region’s green energy transition. Governments alone cannot fund the massive bill. There are significant investment opportunities ahead, and this is where private equity can come alongside public spending in bridging the funding gap.

Closer proximity and greater investor alignment to management in a private equity structure allows for greater exertion of influence over climate and ESG initiatives, increasing investors’ leeway to affect positive climate outcomes.

Asia’s decarbonisation investment opportunity is large with immense growth potential ahead. This space is underpinned by a strong irreversible megatrend (climate change) and is further supported by regulatory tailwinds.

The video below outlines the Fullerton Carbon Action Strategy, and how it seeks to catalyse private capital towards decarbonisation in Asia.

There is also an audio interview between Fullerton’s Deputy CIO and Head of Alternatives, Tan Huck Khim, and FT Longitude, which highlights the private equity investment opportunities in Asia’s fast-growing decarbonisation space.
