During the interview, Anthony emphasized our active engagement in fostering partnerships with businesses and providing green finance education since the launch of the green finance roadmap in 2018.

FoE (HK) believes that green finance is a critical tool in combating climate change. To address the lack of professional ESG-related course in Hong Kong and the Asia-Pacific region, FoE (HK) introduced the EFFAS CESGA programme (CESGA) into Hong Kong to encourage more people to enter the ESG industry. Hong Kong has the opportunity to become a hub for green and sustainable finance in the Asia-Pacific region, giving the increasing global demand for environmentally-friendly investments.

Athena also introduced ESG training courses and highlighted the significance in addressing the shortage of ESG and sustainable development talents in Hong Kong. These training programmes aim to support ESG development, deepen knowledge on sustainability, and ignite passion on the journey towards sustainability.

The EFFAS CESGA programme (CESGA) is a widely recognized professional designation which is the gold standard for enhancing ESG investing and sustainable finance skillsets. With a robust alumni network, achieving CESGA certification can propel your career to new heights. FoE (HK) hosts workshops and examinations in Hong Kong for candidates to become an EFFAS Certified ESG Analyst (CESGA).

Registration is now open for the September and December CESGA Examinations, please visit: https://bit.ly/3vU6MNb.

FoE(HK) also offers the Executive Certificate in ESG Analysis & Green Finance Valuation programme, providing insights into the latest trends and reporting requirements in ESG investment and green finance. It serves as a valuable starting point for those interested in learning about green finance.
