As the health crisis of COVID gradually subsides, the attention of businesses and governments worldwide is now on measures to trigger economic recovery and promote economic growth. More focus has been placed on investing in green assets for better long-term returns, and financiers are providing a growing list of green bonds and green loans. Against this backdrop, BEC and Arup co-organised a regional summit on green economy transition on 12 May 2023 to promote Hong Kong as the preferred regional hub for green infrastructures and investment, and how smart technologies can play a key part in it. HKGFA supported the event as the Strategic Partner.
Ms. Jenny Lee, Under Secretary General, HKGFA spoke at the event’s first plenary session – Investment on Green Infrastructure alongside Mr. Norman Cheng, Business Development and Performance Director, Veolia Hong Kong; Dr. Vincent Cheng, Director of Climate and Sustainability Services, East Asia, Arup; Mr. Yeo Zhi Wei, Director, Corporate Development, Keppel Infrastructure; Ms. Carmen Tsang, Executive Director, Head of Sustainable Investment Banking, Greater China, Crédit Agricole CIB. The panelists discussed investment opportunities in the green infrastructure industry.
