Date: Sep 29th 2021, 10:00 to 11:00

日期: Sep 29th 2021, 10:00 to 11:00

Dear members:

Over the last decade, there has been increasing appetite amongst international and supranational organisations, governments, regulators, investors and consumers to transition to a more sustainable economy. Sustainability issues have become a focal point when making key decisions and long-term strategy for business across sectors.

To help members have a better understanding of the sustainable finance, the China Chamber of Commerce in the UK, Standard Chartered and Clifford Chance will jointly hold a sustainable finance seminar on Wednesday 29 September at 10:00 -11:00 am. Sustainable finance refers to the process of taking environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into account when making investment decisions in the financial sector, leading to more long-term investments in sustainable economic activities and projects.

This webinar will give an introduction of sustainable finance, provide an overview of sustainable finance products, give suggestions to help companies mitigate risks, so as to quickly adapt to new regulatory and compliance challenges.


Standard Chartered will share insights on following topic areas:

  • Introduction to UN SDGs
  • Summary of sustainable finance products
  • Overview of green loans, green bonds, and sustainability linked structures
  • Verification process


Clifford Chance experts will provide insights on the following topics:

  • Why do regulators think financial sector ESG regulation is necessary?
  • What regulation are regulators in the EU proposing?
  • How is the UK approaching ESG regulation?
  • What difficulties are firms facing in implementing this regulation?
  • Key areas of ESG risk for firms
  • Considerations for transactions, disclosure and liability


This seminar will be delivered mainly in English. We welcome local employees and customers of the members of the Chamber to participate. Details of this event are as follows:
