Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEX) announced the upcoming launch of the HKEX Sustainable and Green Exchange (STAGE), where Hong Kong Green Finance Association is proudly supporting as a key partner and our Green Bond Working Group will be working closely with HKEX to deliver this important milestone for the Green and Sustainable Finance in the region.
STAGE is an online portal to provide greater information, access and transparency on a wide range of sustainable, green and social investment products; helping to initiate conversations amongst issuers, asset managers, investors and professional advisers on the positioning, innovation and marketing of sustainable and green finance. The new information platform is the first-of-its-kind in Asia and will act as a central hub for data and information on sustainable and green finance investments in the region.
In its initial phase, STAGE will be home to a repository of information on sustainability, green and social bonds, and ESG-related Exchange Traded Products listed on HKEX. Issuers with products that meet international standards or principles and provide post-issuance reports annually are invited to join STAGE without the need to pay any fees and to display their products on the platform. The online repository will be launched as early as later this year.
