Green Finance


Green Finance Framework

As one of the pioneers in Hong Kong’s green bonds market, we set up a Green Bond Framework in 2016 in alignment with the Green Bond Principles issued by the International Capital Market Association to integrate environmental, social and corporate governance into our financing and decision-making processes.

Expanding on the foundation of our Green Bond Framework, we further established a Green Finance Framework in 2018 to cover other forms of green finance, factoring in components recommended in the Green Loan Principles issued by the Asia Pacific Loan Market Association.

The Frameworks set out how we use green finance proceeds to fund initiatives to enhance long-term service levels and environmental performance, as well as the reporting thereon.
