Event Details

The Center for Economic Sustainability & Entrepreneurial Finance (CESEF) of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University is organizing a PASS seminar "ESG Integration in Investment: A Performance Diagnosis under COVID-19" on June 18 (Thur), 2020. Building upon the successful experience of the seminars and conferences under this project in 2019, this forthcoming webinar has taken a more dynamic approach in the format design. Due to the COVID-19 social distancing requirement, we have changed the seminar from a physical meeting to a webinar. In addition, we select a very timely topic with a more interactive approach to enhance learning efficiency under the virtual environment.


The webinar aims to bring together accounting professionals working in different sectors who are interested in green finance and green bond certification. This event is funded by the Professional Services Advancement Support Scheme of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
