Supported by HKGFA and other organisations, the 2019 CUHK Sustainability Conference, which brought together thought leaders, practitioners, and key opinion leaders in the sustainability field, was successfully held on 6 May 2019. The conference stressed that corporations and civil organisations should approach sustainability by aligning its profits along environmental, social, and governance factors.
Tracy Wong Harris, Deputy Secretary General of Hong Kong Green Finance Association (HKGFA) speaking at the ESG Integration and Green Finance panel discussion at CUHK. The panellists shared insight on ESG integration, market approaches, HK Green finance landscape, and discussed what are the key driving force of green finance and ESG integration in Asia.
The future of green finance was bright, believed Tracy. “Climate risks will have an impact on all investment portfolios. Regulators are looking at the future impact of climate risks. Now is the perfect time for green finance development. It’ll become the mainstream.”
