Programme

ReThink 2021 provides insight and inspiration for driving sustainable development across globally recognised risk and opportunity topics, from a Hong Kong context.

The conference programme addresses the sustainability challenges faced by Hong Kong organisations as well as those operating, sourcing, trading or collaborating from our unique city.

Two unique days of keynotes, case studies, interviews, panels, workshops, and interactive sessions will address the rapidly changing landscape of environmental and societal sustainability whilst unpacking how business leaders and sustainability practitioners can accelerate and amplify change across their complex internal and external stakeholder structures.

ReThink is committed to having no ‘manels’ (no all-male panels) at our event and works closely with all our content partners to ensure the full spectrum of insight, expertise and inspiration is represented across the programme.

ReThink is Hong Kong’s unrivalled forum for discussing how businesses can “build back better” by mitigating against climate change, investing in technology, using resources sustainably and reducing inequality.

Through shared responsibility, collective change and a pivot in the way organisations measure success, we are taking a moonshot by encouraging businesses to embrace innovation, work together, respect and protect our waterways and biodiversity and improve the lives of all.

Stay tuned… key speakers and the full agenda will be announced soon.
