Newsletter Issue #4: October 2018
For those of us who still wonder what climate change means for a developed city like Hong Kong, Typhoon Mangkhut brought this message home with ferocity this past month. This is an urgent call for the sustainable finance community to invest in climate action and support the transition to a low carbon economy.
Our Top Picks this month will continue to raise awareness and explore what investors can do for climate change, including some key post-GCAS commitments to climate finance globally as well as a series of new announcements surrounding the launch the Hong Kong Green Finance Association.
This issue also includes an investor profile of Tony Yeung, a member of SFi’s Investor Circle. His story shows that you can learn about sustainable investing while you’re doing it and that you don’t need to be an expert to take action.
We are also sharing our first book recommendation, along with several key sustainable finance events to add to your calendar.
