With the international discussions of limiting global warming, and the rising engagement of the finance industry with climate change, institutional investors are increasingly tracking the carbon emissions of listed companies. However, global institutional investors seem to be more inclined to penalize companies that have high carbon risks – by demanding a stock price discount – than rewarding those with good environmental performance. Have carbon risks been fully priced into listed equities in the Hong Kong market?
On Tuesday November 15, from 8-9 p.m. HKT, join us for Social Impact Leadership Series: Carbon Risks and Equity Prices, an event offered by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Programme on Social Innovation.
This webinar will feature Dr. Agnes K. Y. Tai, Director of Great Glory Investment Corporation and Head of Sustainability Investment and Advisory of Arta Asset Management Limited. She will share her latest research on discovering investors’ behavior towards carbon risks and understand their motivation behind the chosen price action.
Plato Yip, Chairman of Friends of the Earth (HK), will share his perspectives on the roles that different stakeholders can play through their programs on community mobilization and talent development.SILS: Carbon Risks and Equity Prices
