About Us

The ASEAN Institute of Carbon Neutrality (AICN) was incepted in late 2023 under the umbrella of CGS International Securities (Singapore), an award-winning and market-leading integrated financial services provider.


AICN aspires to motivate capital markets into mobilising finance for climate change action across ASEAN, a vibrant and biodiversity-rich region that is projected to become the world’s fourth-largest economy by 2030.*


CGS International’s prominent market presence in ASEAN places it in a unique position to help the region achieve the optimal balance between economic progress and sustainability, by transitioning away from fossil fuels and advocating for biodiversity protection.


As part of the AICN mission, we are always open to collaboration with like-minded partners to drive conversations that can shape meaningful action to address climate change.
