Case Study / 17 Jul 2015

British Consulate-General Hong Kong

Trucost was commissioned to review how companies listed on the HKEx manage their exposure to climate change risks and opportunities.

The British Consulate-General Hong Kong, commissioned Trucost to review how companies listed on the Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing (HKEx) manage their exposure to climate change risks and opportunities.

This was commissioned in light of HKEx’s proposal to move the voluntary Environmental, Social and Governance Reporting Guide (ESG Guide) towards a more rigorous ‘comply or explain’ approach by the end of 2015.

Trucost examined both the carbon disclosure level and carbon management performance of 100 selected listed companies between 2011 and 2013. The study also makes reference to the experience of other major stock exchanges, reporting companies and investors in other markets. This report concludes with recommendations on how Hong Kong can improve the uptake of carbon disclosure for companies listed on the HKEx.
