Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce

As the oldest and largest business association in Hong Kong, the Chamber has been at the forefront of advocating for issues that matter to the general and business communities. That includes pioneering the creation of an Environment and Sustainability Committee in the late 80s, the first of its kind among peers. Since then, the Chamber has been engaged in raising awareness on and championing sustainable business practices based on market-driven principles.

Our initiative in accelerating sustainable development in Hong Kong:

A Sustainable Finance Working Group was established by the Chamber in late 2021 to engage with and provide input to the The Green and Sustainable Finance Cross-Agency Steering Group, which comprises financial regulators and government agencies that hold the portfolios for financial services and the environment. The Steering Group was set up in May 2020 to “coordinate the management of climate and environmental risks to the financial sector, accelerate the growth of green and sustainable finance in Hong Kong and support the Government’s climate strategies.”
