Julia Charlton on behalf of the Financial Services Business Council (FSBC) invites you to join a breakfast briefing on "Accelerating Hong Kong's Green Finance Agenda".
Since 2016, "green finance" has been receiving growing emphasis in the policy agenda of the Hong Kong government and is covered almost daily in the media. But what does this mean in practice for Hong Kong's financial services businesses ? What should Hong Kong be trying to achieve out of green finance and what is the best way to get there?
One strategy for pushing the agenda, which FSBC has been championing since 2017, would be the establishment of a Green Investment Bank in Hong Kong, a specialist financial institution to scale up private investment in green infrastructure. As Hong Kong considers its evolving role in the region, in particular, its efforts to support Belt and Road development, this move could have a significant impact on the ground.
Our panel will discuss FSBC's Green Investment Bank concept, including presentation of its most recent briefing paper on "Driving Private Financing for Green Industries in Hong Kong -The Catalytic Role of a Green Investment Bank" (authored by Alexandra Tracy, Founder and President of Hoi Ping Ventures), as well as other strategies and initiatives for accelerating progress on green finance in Hong Kong.
