Hong Kong Sustainable Debt Market Briefing 2023

This is the sixth iteration of the Climate Bonds Hong Kong Sustainable Debt Market Briefing, produced by the Climate Bonds Initiative (Climate Bonds), in association with the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) and Hong Kong Green Finance Association (HKGFA), and with support from Standard Chartered Bank. Using Climate Bonds’ green, social, sustainability, (GSS) and sustainability-linked bond (SLB) (collectively GSS+) datasets based on place of risk, this series of reports provides a comprehensive overview of Hong Kong’s sustainable debt market at the end of 2023.

Hong Kong has formulated its own climate goals and strategies in response to the Paris Agreement and the Central People’s Government decarbonisation agenda. The HKSAR sustainable debt market has achieved significant growth in both relative and absolute terms. At the policy level, the HKSAR Government has introduced various initiatives to support decarbonisation efforts and further capital mobilisation for green activities.
