The ESG Impact Hub (the Hub) is launched by MAS to spur co-location and collaboration between Environment, Social, Governance (ESG) FinTech start-ups and solution providers, financial institutions and real economy stakeholders. The Hub will also anchor industry-driven sustainability initiatives such the Point Carbon Zero Programme  and KPMG's ESG Business Foundry  . Located at The Great Room at Afro-Asia  , the launch was officiated by Mr Ravi Menon, Managing Director of MAS.
2. The establishment of the Hub seeks to capitalise on the strong industry interest in Project Greenprint  and expedite the growth of Singapore’s ESG ecosystem on three fronts:
- Growing ESG FinTechs: The Hub will facilitate the discovery, scaling and deployment of technology solutions to address ESG needs of corporates and financial institutions, notably in terms of accurate measurement, reporting and verification of climate and sustainability data.
- Anchoring ESG Enablers: MAS will engage knowledge partners, financial institutions and investors to organise key ESG initiatives out of the Hub, such as ESG FinTech accelerator programmes, training and capacity-building workshops, and thought leadership events.
- Supporting ESG Stakeholders: MAS will engage the Hub community to deploy its programmes and solutions to drive material, quantifiable impacts that support sectoral transition efforts, with particular emphasis on the eight focus sectors identified by the Green Finance Industry Taskforce (GFIT).
