Area of work, and why it’s important:
I will be looking into climate finance and market & non-market tools. ESG investments are about a third of all investments nowadays, but the reliability of ESG ratings of funds is unclear. With COP26, I would like to see the alignment of regulatory frameworks to net zero, setting a cap and a reasonable price in carbon trading.
What will you be doing at COP26?
As a founding member of Hong Kong Youth for Climate Action(HKYCA), I am doing a petition of urging for a bigger step towards zero emissions. We are planning to send the position paper to the focal point of the Research and independent non-governmental organizations (RINGO). We are also planning to hold some activities with the climate youth groups from other Asian places.
What are your hopes for the COP26 negotiations?
I hope COP26 can finalise the Paris Rulebook on the timeframe towards net zero emissions. Also deliver on the first two goals that developed countries must make good on their promise to mobilise at least $100bn in climate finance per year by 2020.
Any tips for readers about climate action?
Use less plastics, be responsible in consumption, read the IPCC report.
