Peter Droege addressed the Macao Green Finance Summit, 6-7 August 2021, on the need for a financial paradigm shift to attempt a halt to runaway climate change. The hope behind the initiative is to establish mechanisms for certified financial investment flows in sustainable infrastructure from and to the region, in the form of rated and monitored bonds. Professor Droege pushed for Macao as an international and regional showcase for sustainability practice.
