Abstract

Our goal was promoting green finance in Hong Kong by determining the reasons that investors do not buy more green investments and then finding ways to increase green investments. We accomplished this by interviewing green finance researchers and industry professionals, while sending a questionnaire to government agencies. From their responses, we recommend that the government advise companies to disclose information that investors are looking for, companies need to create more valuable green projects, green finance researchers and professionals should work with the government to create principles for environmental, social, and governance (ESG) rating agencies, and that the government work with finance professionals to educate the finance industry on the proper use of ESG scores.
