Hong Kong can further enhance its competitiveness by leveraging its status as China’s Offshore financial centre, and as a gateway for foreign investors to invest into China’s plans to be carbon neutral by 2060. With Asia being a significant source of carbon emissions, countries are looking into methods to transition and mitigate climate-related risk, build resilience, and lower emissions. Hong Kong is well-positioned to shape the future of green finance, be at the forefront of innovative sustainable products and finance the transition to net-zero.

This year’s Annual Forum speakers will explore, discuss and debate how and what actions are needed to lead Asian countries towards the carbon neutrality target.
