Ogier Global Hong Kong has joined the Hong Kong Green Finance Association, as the corporate administration service continues to develop its ESG & Impact team.
Ogier's dedicated ESG and Impact advisory service supports clients with ESG & Impact integration, translating ESG policy into operations and navigating the evolving ESG regulatory landscape.

Founded in September 2018, Hong Kong Green Finance Association (HKGFA) creates a platform that offers channels and opportunities to facilitate the development of green finance and sustainable investments in Hong Kong and beyond. It aims to mobilise both public and private sectors resources and talents in developing green finance policies, to promote green finance business and product innovation within financial institutions. HKGFA's main goal is to position Hong Kong as a leading international green finance hub by providing greater access and opportunities for Hong Kong's financial institutions to participate in green financing transactions locally, in Mainland China and in markets along the Belt & Road. This is in line with global efforts to meet the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.
Director and Head of ESG and Impact Advisory at Ogier Global, Leonie Kelly, said: "We believe collective action by financial market participants is especially important to accelerate the transition towards a climate resilient economy in Hong Kong, and we are delighted to be part of HKGFA – a platform that is gathering industry actors to promote sustainable finance in Hong Kong".
