Green Finance in HK－
How to Make a Successful Case through Collaboration between the Consultants and the Financial Institutions
Making progress to achieve net zero has become international headlines in the media after the COP27. While most of us are aware we have to act, act fast and act now, we need success stories from leaders so that we can learn the HOW.
Particularly in the green finance areas, professionals in the environment impact sectors are keen to contribute and excel together. In this webinar, jointly organised with HKIEIA, we have international green finance leaders, Mr Adams Wong and Mr Dennis Ngai, sharing with us their experience and how their collaboration facilitates the success of green finance projects.
