A highlight of the event is the HKGFA Webinar Session on 19 January 2021 (Tue) 3 pm – 4 pm. In late 2020, China, Japan, and Korea committed to Net-Zero Emission targets by 2050 or 2060, in alignment with the Paris Agreement. Further action plans and strategies are expected to be released in the coming years to achieve the goals. Green and sustainable finance play a crucial role in the climate transition process through investments and financing green projects. Looking ahead, how would finance and policy align with our climate ambitions in Asia? What is the next major breakthrough and opportunities for green and sustainable finance?
