Southeast Asia is among the world’s most vulnerable regions when it comes to the effects of climate change. Hence, the region has received great attention from climate-focused VCs.

“About 80% of global GDP is now committed to net zero. But guess what? There are not many solutions out there for them. So we think there is a huge opportunity in this sector,” said Sui Ling Cheah, operating partner at Wavemaker Partners, during a panel discussion titled ‘Driving decarbonisation: How the startup ecosystem can take the lead’ at the Asia PE-VC Summit 2022 on Sept. 28.
