Sustainable Finance powering Sustainable Development

A TEDTalk by Herry Cho


Sustainable Development is coming, whether you are ready for it or not. How is the finance community supporting this, and what more can be done? My vision is for financiers to empower industries and the economy towards sustainable development. I am the Head of Sustainable Finance in the Asia Pacific for an international financial institution operating in over 40 countries. My main responsibilities are: 1) the origination and structuring of 'green', 'social' and 'sustainability' bonds, loans and other financial instruments, 2) advisory on sustainability ratings, and 3) supporting the integration of sustainability internally into product, sector and country teams' activities.

I contribute on a number of expert sustainability and finance committees in the region, and reside in Singapore. Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry (MBioch) was my degree at University of Oxford, and I’ve lived, worked and traveled in over 60 countries . In my spare time I play piano and ukulele for relaxation, act like kids with my fiancé, sing with my Amazon parrot Morrocho, meditate on water, and delve into nature. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
