My Sustainability Goals for 2023:

In 2023 and 2024, Hong Kong must focus on harnessing the city’s technological innovation capacities to tackle the territory’s most pressing socio-economic challenges, from ecosystem degradation to the everyday challenges faced by our most vulnerable groups. Hong Kong must move to implement solutions prioritising social and environmental progress for all stakeholders, not just profits for shareholders.
