Finance & Supply Chains Theatre

Catalysing Net Zero Pathways with Green Technology

Day 1 : 14:45 – 15:35

Bridging the sustainable finance gap between addressing ESG (environmental, social, and governance) challenges, and adopting green technology at scale and pace is essential for Asia to effectively achieve its climate targets and transition to low-carbon economies. How can financing be secured to enable early adoption? What is the role of private finance, and what are the opportunities for start-ups?
The panel will discuss how green technologies have been successfully integrated, and scaled to generate a positive impact and profit with real case studies.


  • What kind of insights can we explore in the Green Fintech and Green Tech landscapes, as well as what initiatives are aimed at promoting the adoption of green technology?
  • What opportunities and challenges are associated with financing emerging green technology and innovation?
  • What application of technology solutions in investment, business operations decision-making, and risk management to drive performance are there?

Post-event Actions

  • Creating a vibrant green ecosystem in Hong Kong.
  • Enhancing transparency and facilitating access to private sector financing for green fintech and green tech firms to scale and for corporates to adopt.
