Event Details


In 2017, the Sustainability Committee of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce started a project aimed at understanding and improving the situation in Hong Kong with regards to plastic waste. The project was motivated by a sense that all of us as residents and businesspeople 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. As the committee dug deeper, it soon became apparent that this is a major global issue where Hong Kong plays a not insignificant role.

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 Snack will be served. The sustainable Snack is sponsored by WHAT'sIN FRUITBOX, -a company delivering fresh organic fruits, using only eco-friendly packaging
