Future Hong Kong 2030: Smart solutions and avenues for cooperation to build a more liveable and sustainable city

A smart city must be a sustainable city, with technology used to help preserve resources and reduce the impact on climate change. In the coming decade, Hong Kong’s liveability will be influenced by factors such as its built and natural environments, access to efficient and cost-effective government services, mobility, education and employment opportunities, and the welfare of its most disadvantaged citizens.  Meanwhile, the city’s physical sustainability will be shaped by its resilience to climate change and its management of scarce resources. 

In this webinar, Anson Bailey will share highlights from a recent white paper, Future Hong Kong 2030, published in cooperation with CLP, Cyberport, HKBN JOS, Smart City Consortium, Siemens, Weave Co-Living and Wilson Group. The report analyses the factors shaping Hong Kong’s smart city transformation over the next ten years and looks at what measures to be included to make Hong Kong both more liveable and more sustainable, with technology as a key enabler.

The panel will then share their practical considerations and insights on how to incorporate ESG practices into business models; and key challenges and opportunities related to partnering with the government and other businesses on sustainability initiatives. They will also discuss how innovation can encourage the shift to clean energy, carbon-neutral buildings and improved waste management and recycling, as well as other sustainability goals.

There will be a 40 minute presentation followed by a 15 minute panel discussion. 


Details on how to join this webinar will be sent via email 2 hours before the webinar start time.
