About this Seminar: Green CapEx - An Overview of Funding Sources in Hong Kong

With sustainability and environmental concerns playing an ever bigger role in shaping investment decisions, the availability of dedicated funding sources for green capital expenditure (CapEx) is a key concern. Whether it be investing in an office refurbishment, deciding on whether to go electric with your new car (fleet) or simply optimising the office's water supplies: All these and many more day to day investments can benefit from grants, subsidies, tax breaks or loans at beneficial rates. But what exactly are the requirements and how simple or hard is the application process?

This hands-on seminar aims to offer an overview of the available funding sources and benefits centred around ESG investments in Hong Kong, including the application requirements. It also contrasts these with benefits and schemes available in other parts of Asia and in Germany to establish a relative baseline of Hong Kong's competitiveness.
