BEC EnviroSeries Conference – ESG Management: From Niche to Mainstream

Date/ Time/ Venue

23 May 2014, 10:30 to 18:00, The Exchange Auditorium, Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited

Synopsis

Effective Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) management, encompassing the concepts of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), helps create shared value for both business and society, and helps build sustainable economies. Apart from ethical reasons, ESG management is also fundamental for companies to build resilience against corporate risks and create long-term shareholder value.

Better ESG management and disclosure among Hong Kong businesses may enable Hong Kong to attract more capital, enhance our competitiveness, and thus, escalate our status as an international finance centre. The business community needs to be part of the conversation in shaping the policies for future market practice. In this Conference, BEC will bring together market regulators, business leaders, private equity firms, financial institutions, and industry professionals to review current market practice, and to drive decision-making that is beneficial to investors, corporates and wider society.
