Founded in September 2018, Hong Kong Green Finance Association (HKGFA) creates a platform that offers channels and opportunities to facilitate the development of green finance and sustainable investments in Hong Kong and beyond. It aims to mobilize both public and private sectors resources and talents in developing green finance policies, to promote green finance business and product innovation within financial institutions. HKGFA’s main goal is to position Hong Kong as a leading international green finance hub by providing greater access and opportunities for Hong Kong’s financial institutions to participate in green financing transactions locally, in Mainland China and in markets along the Belt & Road. This is in line with the global trend of implementing the UN sustainable development goals and the Paris Agreement.
HKGFA’s key activities are organized through five working groups, namely Banking – Financing The Transition
Product Innovation And Solutions, Sustainability – Related Disclosures, Policy and Standards, Greater Bay Area Green Finance Alliance, and Real Estate. Please see the Working Group session for more information.
