Non-listed Company Questionnaire on Climate and Environmental Risk

In December 2022, the Green and Sustainable Finance Cross-Agency Steering Group (Steering Group) entered into a collaboration arrangement with CDP 1 to jointly enhance climate data availability and sustainability reporting in Hong Kong. As part of the collaboration, the Steering Group and CDP developed a Climate and Environmental Risk Questionnaire for Non-listed companies/small and medium-sized enterprises (Non-listed Company Questionnaire), which is a cross-sector reporting template designed for first-time reporting corporates in Hong Kong. The easy-to-use template is intended to facilitate financial institutions’ collection and assessment of company-level data for risk assessment and relevant business decisions.

Non-listed companies or SMEs may log in the Sustainability Disclosure e-Portal to submit the questionnaire responses.


To facilitate the use of the Non-listed Company Questionnaire, the Steering Group and CDP have developed comprehensive guidance and learning materials, conducted hybrid training workshops, and centralised the relevant resources that help users to fill in the questionnaire. Further details and e-materials are as below.

* The  Steering Group will continue to review and update the questions periodically with CDP's assistance, in line with global standards.


Non-listed Company Questionnaire Templates

The template comes in three versions with different level of granularity, to cater for variation in the reporting corporates’ size and sophistication.

Climate-related scenario analysis and transition plan

According to the Science-based Targets initiative, aligning with a 1.5°C world currently means reducing Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions to zero or close to zero and neutralising any residual emissions by 2050 at the latest. Scenario analysis and climate transition plans can be regarded as the tools that companies use to put them on track toward a 1.5°C world. The CDP has advised the following learning resources for reporting the use of these tools.
