Outline: The Center for Economic Sustainability & Entrepreneurial Finance (CESEF) of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University is organizing a PASS seminar “Understanding ESG Inclusion and Green Bond Certification” on February 11 (Tue), 2020. Building upon the successful experience of the seminars and conferences under this project in 2019, this forthcoming seminar has taken a new approach in providing a more in-depth training for accounting professionals. We have changed the format from a panel arrangement to a workshop approach which allows the attendees to understand detail and step-by-step analytical procedure in order to tackle relevant ESG and green bond challenges.

This event is collaborated with Hong Kong Investor Relations Association (HKIRA) and will be held at SPRG. The seminar aims to bring together accounting professionals working in different sectors who are interested in green finance and green bond certification. This event is funded by the Professional Services Advancement Support Scheme of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
