Green Finance – An Overview
19:00 - 20:00
Green finance has been brought under the spotlight since the G20 Hangzhou Summit in 2016, which has become a hot topic among the investment community in the recent years. In 2016, USD81 billion green bond were issued around the world, and increased significantly to USD167.3 billion in 2018. China is one of the leading countries on green finance development, which accounted for 18% of the world issued last year. The Hong Kong SAR Government drives robust green bond market and establishes Hong Kong as a leading hub for green finance in the region. The government announced in 2018 a USD12.8 billion sovereign green bond issuance programme in order to demonstrate her commitment. In addition, Hong Kong Monetary Authority unveiled three measures in early May 2019 to promote green finance in Hong Kong, which includes establishing green and sustainable banking and Centre for Green Finance, and supporting responsible investment. In this seminar, the speaker will share his observations, insights as well as his experience regarding green finance development and related Green Finance certification programme.
