More and more global players see Circular Economy as essential for shaping a sustainable business model while driving growth for their businesses. This first-ever conference on Circular Economy by Business Environment Council (BEC) will give you an overview of the concept and implications of Circular Economy. We will bring together well-known industry experts and thought leaders, as well as key policy makers from both Hong Kong and overseas to examine opportunities, strategies, innovative technologies and collaborative initiatives in promoting circular economy. The conference aims to inspire our audiences to optimize the utilization of assets by adopting the circular business model for enhancing not only environmental protection, but also the competitiveness and economic growth of Hong Kong.

Plenary topics include:

  • Rethinking waste and discovering the value of waste in the circular economy
  • A Sectoral Analysis: from textiles to electronics and building materials - from waste prevention to extending lifespan of the resources used.
  • The final step - waste to energy in the circular economy and implications for Hong Kong

The EnviroSeries Conference has been BEC’s flagship event since 2002 which provides a cross-sector forum in Hong Kong for government officials, policy makers, business leaders, professionals, and local and international experts to address key sustainability issues.
