Evening Seminar

No Time to Waste - Call To Action Summit

Please email for more information

Co-organised with InterCham.


The Smart City Smart Environment Series was motivated by a sense that all of us as residents and business-people in Hong Kong, can do more to keep our city greener. Simple statistics, such as the 5.2 million plastic bottles discarded every day by Hong Kongers (that is almost 2 billion bottles per year!), illustrate the seriousness of the situation. Joining forces with other international Chambers, this series was created to increase the dialogue and awareness of the issue.


The Seminar

The evening will start with opening remarks by Mrs. Vicki Kwok, Deputy Director of Environmental Protection Department in Hong Kong, and by Mrs. Helena Storm, Consul General of Sweden. A few words about the plastic pledge from The Sustainability committee of Swedcham will kick off the panel diskussion with Moon Kim, Cleantech Venture Partner at Spring Capital Asia, Eric Swinton, Founder of V Cycle, Dana Winograd, Director – Operations at Plastic Free Seas and Dr. Steve Wong, Managing Director at Executive President, China Scrap Plastics Association and Fukutomi Company Ltd. The panel will be moderated by Alexander Mastrovito, Chair of the SwedCham Sustainability Committee.


Drinks and sustainable snacks will be served.
