INDE. Summit - Program Details

Finding & Financing Sustainability: Indo-pacific Built Environment Case Studies

What drives a strong vision for holistic sustainability in a project? How is it financed? What supports and threatens its implementation? The answers and the very framing of the questions will vary with place, budget and regulation, but will certainly allude to how the various players in the built environment industry value sustainability in all its forms. This session will seek out positive examples of sustainable development as a means of finding lessons that could benefit the regional industry as a whole.


At the end of this panel, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the different models of financing to facilitate a sustainable development
  • Investigate the difference in process to achieve sustainable outcomes within the region and which is working best and why
  • Understand why sustainable developments matter and how this type of project is influencing the culture and environment of different countries
  • How to plan for a sustainable future in an ever changing environment
