Limits of Growth – Hong Kong

While messages of rising carbon emissions, global warming, and planetary alarm seem to be a regular occurrence at the global level, in China the discussion is centered around a more tangible set of limits.

Hosted by Haworth, and sponsored by EATON, this round of Beyond Business As Usual will be focused on the Limits of Growth so that participants can develop a deeper understanding of the issues that Asia faces, and how business leaders can prepare themselves and their organizations.

For Hong Kong, a city that is among Asia’s densest and most expensive, its ability to maintain growth and economic prosperity has long been tied to its service sector. However, as has been reported, Hong Kong is beginning to find it difficult to retain talent as the concerns of quality of life, pollution, healthcare, and economic opportunity grow.

To address several key issues, energy, affordable housing, and waste, and we have invited the below leaders to come and share their views on the issues as they see them and how they are positioning themselves and their firms going forward.

Invited Speakers include:
Glenn Frommer – MTR, Chief Sustainable Development Manager
Ediwn Keh – CEO of Textile Exchange
Patrick Cheung – The Jade Club

As with previous sessions, our aim is to turn inspiration to action, and as such we will be allocating a significant amount of time to discussion. So, please come prepared with your questions, your business cards, and ideas about how we can all take a step forward towards Beyond Business as Usual
