AVISTA Group and Acumen Environmental Engineering and Technologies Co., Ltd (“Acumen”) were invited by HKICPA to hold a seminar in November 2015. The seminar provided each participant a thorough review of the latest ESG regulatory development in Hong Kong and the approach in preparing the ESG report which listed companies in Hong Kong should be aware of.

Our Speaker, Mr. Vincent Pang, Managing Director at AVISTA Group and two environment consultants from Acumen shared some cases and their insights in ESG reporting. Vincent presented on the global trend of corporate reporting, and talked about the values created by ESG disclosures. He also touched upon the latest ESG regulatory development in Hong Kong. The other two of the presenters shared their views on the strategic approach for preparing an ESG report and the understanding of carbon audit.
