HK Gov published Green FinTech Map 2024



Green and sustainable finance has experienced significant growth in recent years, with regulators around the globe paying increasing attention to it. The Hong Kong SAR Government and the Green and Sustainable Finance Cross-Agency Steering Group (Steering Group) are committed to creating a thriving sustainable finance ecosystem, with Green Fintech as the enabler.

The use of technology to enable information and data flow can enhance disclosure transparency and accessibility, lower compliance costs, and increase the efficiency of capital allocation towards sustainable and net-zero activities. Technology can help scale financing and investment activities in Hong Kong which will reinforce its role as the sustainable finance hub. This will also capture financing and investment opportunities in the region including the Mainland.

To support this effort, the Steering Group, Cyberport, and Invest Hong Kong worked together to develop a centralised Green Fintech Map. The aim is to help companies and financial institutions better understand the availability and development stage of solutions in the Hong Kong Green Fintech landscape. The Green Fintech Map also serves as a directory to raise the profile of Green Fintech firms operating in Hong Kong. They span across five categories: (i) ESG data and analytics, (ii) ESG disclosures and regulatory reporting, (iii) climate risk modelling and assessment, (iv) green digital finance and investments, and (v) carbon credit trading and analytics. The list of Green Fintech firms and the classification will be updated periodically, recognising the rapidly evolving green fintech landscape.
