HKU Business School held its Inaugural ESG Conference
On 24 November 2023, the HKU Business School held its Inaugural ESG Conference, setting the stage for impactful discussions on cutting-edge research findings and recommendations for pressing environmental and social challenges.
It was a remarkable gathering of 75 brilliant academics, including faculty members and PhD students from a range of disciplines such as Accounting, Economics, Finance, IMM, Management, and Marketing, making it a truly interdisciplinary event.
Some of the thought-provoking topics covered included the use of AI as a teaching tool to bridge the gender inequality gap, the impact of institutional investors’ selection of green stocks on portfolio risk and diversification, and the effectiveness of incorporating environmental factors in management compensation to encourage “greener” behaviour.
Thanks to the organizers of this event, Prof. Roni Michaely, Prof. Shipeng Yan, and Prof. Guojun He, as well as all the incredible speakers and attendees, who voluntarily dedicated a whole day to academic discussion and the exchange of knowledge, their contributions have played an integral role in the success of the ESG research and made the event truly inspiring and insightful.
