Sign-up for ACN's last Responsible Business 101 Webinar on Gender Equity and for the first topical webinar on the role of carbon pricing in tackling climate change -- corrected version

Promoting and enabling
responsible business conduct in ASEAN

We present to you the last installment of the
Responsible Business 101 Webinar Series.

The last webinar of the series is about:

May 10, 3-4PM (SG time)

At present, there is a lack of initiative undertaken to analyse gender issues within the framework of responsible business. Furthermore, there is an inadequate attention given to the gender-differentiated impact on business on women's rights and the barriers they face in accessing effective remedies. It is within this context, that this webinar, aims to provide an overview of the importance to mainstream gender lens into responsible business policies and practices, to promote gender equity and women's empowerment.


After the successful introductory RB101 Webinar Series,
we would also like to invite you to our first topical webinar on 
May 24, 3-4PM (SG time).



Carbon pricing is an increasingly popular instrument used by governments and companies to tackle climate change. Regions and countries that have implemented carbon pricing mechanisms include the EU and China. In 2017, Singapore announced that it would also be implementing a carbon tax system from 2019 - the first in the Southeast Asia region. While many have cheered this move, industries have voiced concerns about how it might affect the competitiveness of firms here. This webinar will explain the mechanisms of carbon pricing and how it is being used to tackle climate change, as well as go further in-depth by using Singapore as a case study for discussion. It will also discuss the move in light of international market mechanisms currently being developed under the Paris Agreement, which is expected to play a significant role in facilitating countries in meeting their climate goals in the coming years.

This webinar will be conducted by Ms Melissa Low, Research Fellow, Energy Studies Institute.
