CWR-HKGFA Seminar & Drinks: Adapting and mitigating for accelerating climate threats – Redefining ICT

HKGFA 主辦活動

The rise of AI will not only lead to ballooning carbon emissions in Asia, but thirsty data centres could mean that tech players could encounter real liquidity constraints. The financial sector has a major role to play in avoiding this future by leading the greening of ICT from Asia through green finance opportunities.

Join us for the HKGFA and CWR Summer networking drinks event. Hear from industry experts at CWR and Tencent on the challenges and opportunities facing the power-hungry and water-thirsty ICT sector. The discussion will be followed by practical considerations and sustainable financing insights from banks.
