Ms. Tracy Wong Harris, Executive Vice President of Hong Kong Green Finance Association (HKGFA) spoke at the SCMP Hong Kong – Asean Summit in the panel “Asean Going Green” on 9 October. A few highlights of the panel and Tracy’s sharing:

  1. The panel highlights the importance and great potential of the ASEAN market as most of the ASEAN members have committed to Net Zero targets, creating a vibrant environment and huge demand for transition activities.
  2. All market players have a role to play in decarbonizing the respective industries, transitioning, and achieving the Net Zero target, including retail and SMEs.
  3. Sector-wise, the Asean market energy-related transition can focus on the high-emitting sectors including power, transportation, building, and manufacturing. From funding the early retirement of coal fire plants to moving to green and electric vehicles, a high-integrity, high-quality voluntary carbon market could be one of the essential tools to efficiently channel capital from emitter to where the innovation is required.
