Hong Kong Green Finance Association Gathering Industry Forces to Promote Green Finance and Investment

Aim and Mission

The aim and mission of the HKGFA is to gather industry experts and provide policy suggestions to the HKSAR Government and other regulators in developing green finance in the city.

Founded in September 2018, the Hong Kong Green Finance Association (HKGFA) provides a unique platform that supports the development of green finance and sustainable investments in Hong Kong and beyond. It aims to mobilise both public and private sector resources and talents in developing green finance policies, to promote green finance business and product innovation within financial institutions. The HKGFA’s main goal is to position Hong Kong as a leading international green tech and green finance hub by providing greater access and opportunities for Hong Kong’s financial institutions and corporates to participate in green financing transactions locally, in mainland China, and in markets along the Belt & Road. This is in line with the global path to implementing the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.

The HKGFA’s key activities are organised 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.
