The growing momentum of ESG globally has led to remarkable progress in promoting Hong Kong’s sustainable agenda. As an international financial centre, Hong Kong is well supported with robust infrastructure to become a premier green and sustainable finance hub. There are plenty of ESG-related initiatives across the public sector in Hong Kong and they go hand in hand with the private sector efforts.
As a continuum of FSDC’s efforts in driving the ESG agenda, a comprehensive collateral is developed to accentuate key actors’ concerted efforts in developing a robust sustainable infrastructure and investment ecosystem in Hong Kong. The three sections of the collateral focused on different themes, namely (i) Hong Kong’s sustainability characteristics; (ii) collective efforts in taking forward ESG development under the pillars of capacity building, regulatory, incentives, product offerings; and (iii) sharing from leading practitioners across various sectors (e.g. asset managers, family offices, private corporations, etc.) on their sustainable journey in Hong Kong.
