They will discuss how Hong Kong’s business leaders are driving and transforming the business sector towards sustainability.
The second session “Going Circular” will focus on the topic of circular economy, in which moderator Ms Helga Vanthournout will lead a discussion with Ms Suzanne Cheung of Swire Coca-Cola, Ms Stephane Heddesheimer of SUEZ (Asia) and Ms Payal Jain of H&M. The conversation will touch on how these companies set out to becoming circular and how that leads to new business experience and long-term benefits.
