The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the urgency and importance of building resilient supply chains, as well as dynamic economic and financial systems to withstand future shocks. These include climate-related risks, which are perhaps the most pressing challenge to the stability of global markets and welfare of humanity .
Previously regarded as an oxymoron, green finance is increasingly gaining traction among businesses and investors, who see climate change as an opportunity to tap into new sources of capital and invest in green or sustainable assets that contribute to improving resource efficiency, lowering emissions, and developing sustainable products and services. According to estimates by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), an average of US$ 6.9 trillion a year will be required for green infrastructure investments from 2016 to 2030.
Join our seminar on 17 November to hear from Hong Kong Green Finance Association's Jonathan Drew, who will give an overview of Hong Kong's green finance ecosystem and its development compared to the Mainland. He will be joined by BNP Paribas' Robert Barker, who will speak on the role of the banking sector in green finance, as well as future investment trends. Calvin Kwan from Link Asset Management will also be on hand to share his company's approach to green investing.
