Redesign: Designing Out Waste and Innovative Manufacturing ‘

12:10 – 13:00

As we explore sustainable manufacturing practices and reducing waste in Hong Kong, it is important to consider the role or innovation and how we are progressing the redesign process, as a produce design will significantly affect its reparability, reusability and recyclability. 

The panel will explore innovative manufacturing practices, that can reduce waste and increase resource efficiency. The discussion will also touch on the role of product design in promoting circularity, including the use of sustainable materials and the incorporation of end-of-life considerations in the design process. 


  • What are some successful examples of circular design/manufacturing processes in Hong Kong? 
  • How can designers and manufacturers incorporate end-of-life considerations into the design process and create products that can have an extended life span? 

Post-event actions 

  • Accelerate the mindset shift to adopt eco- or sustainable design and prepare to meet consumers’ expectations.  
  • Re-evaluate existing manufacturing processes to identify alternative greener alternatives.
