Hong Kong’s regional and global connections make it a natural hub for sustainable finance in Asia. With supportive policies, global banks and a spectrum of investment organisations, it has played a leading role in facilitating ground-breaking sustainable finance deals for Hong Kong-based and Mainland Chinese issuers.
BNP Paribas continues to help build Hong Kong’s financial infrastructure as an inaugural member of the Hong Kong International Carbon Market Council, an initiative to support the development of an international carbon trading market in Hong Kong. As the only European bank on the Council, BNP Paribas is uniquely placed to advise on product development and alignment with carbon trading standards in Europe, the world’s biggest and longest-running carbon market.
Hong Kong also serves as the regional hub for BNP Paribas’ Low Carbon Transition Group, a dedicated global team of 250 professionals working to help corporations and institutions access the resources they need to accelerate their transition to a more sustainable economy.
