As a highly developed and affluent city, Hong Kong continues to face varied and complicated social issues. Recently, businesses have been targeting and implementing The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into their business strategies in order to take part in transforming the world with the greater community. SDGs are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. It is a global movement to inspire individuals and businesses around the world to be a part of the change they wish to see in the near future by solving 17 of the world’s most challenging problems by 2030.
How knowledgeable are you with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) & the current trends among other companies?
According to the Hong Kong Chapter of the United National’ Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN Hong Kong) only 14.5% of individuals aged 15-30 in Hong Kong have heard about the SDGs. In 2015, the companies in the Hang Seng index, donated over 4.7 billion dollars to charities.
As an increasing number of businesses across sectors are exploring to implement and align their business strategies with the SDGs and educate the community; our goal is to help identify challenges so that these businesses can soon bring impact and value to their own business and the community as a whole.
Engage in a panel to discuss on how Startups, Corporates, NGOs and individuals with ideas can increase the positive impact through empowering communities, create innovative solutions. Together, let’s empower and flourish together through collaborative efforts.
