Hong Kong Exchange Joins Net Zero Global Alliances to Support Low-Carbon Transition

4th November 2021 | Hong Kong

Hong Kong Exchange (HKEX) has joined the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ) and the Net Zero Financial Service Providers Alliance (NZFSPA), to support low-carbon transition and the long-term sustainable development of global financial markets.  HKEX is joining leading financial institutions around the world to accelerate the transition to a net-zero global economy, supporting global efforts to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement on climate change.  As a regulator, market operator, and a corporate, HKEX is uniquely placed to help lead the sustainable finance transition. In joining these important alliances, HKEX seeks to be a key agent for change in contributing to restricting global temperature rises to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.  (HEX ~ Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited)

We are therefore today joining this global alliance and making a net zero pledge, and hope that all in our community in Hong Kong, and across global markets do the same.
