HKMA and IFC Seminar on Greening Financial Institutions
Hong Kong Monetary Authority
With the support of 12 industry associations and international chambers of commerce in Hong Kong, the event brought together over 300 senior executives, comprising bankers, corporate treasurers, project developers and operators, and professional service providers.
The Seminar highlighted how financial institutions are increasingly factoring in climate-related risks in various aspects such as their governance, lending policies, risk management frameworks, investment portfolios, business models and disclosure. The Seminar also discussed various principles and tools for corporates to transition their business and financing strategies, as they take into account how their lenders and investors view their commitments on Environment, Social and Governance (ESG).
