Congratulations to the HKSAR Government’s launching of the three-year Pilot Green and Sustainable Finance Capacity Building Support Scheme (“the Scheme”). The HKGFA-HKUST and HKGFA-HKFSI Certificate in Sustainable Finance courses are honoured to be recognized as eligible programmes under the Scheme.
The Scheme aims at encouraging local eligible practitioners and prospective practitioners to participate in training related to green and sustainable finance in response to the new trend of developing low‑carbon and sustainable economy.
The Pilot Scheme is open for application by Hong Kong residents who are market practitioners and prospective practitioners of green and sustainable finance, namely students and graduates in relevant disciplines. After completing eligible programmes, applicants can apply for a subsidy of up to 80 per cent of the relevant fees (full-time student applicants can apply for a subsidy of up to 100 per cent of the relevant fees), subject to a ceiling of HKD10,000.
