HONG KONG PROGRAM

CLEANTECH & SUSTAINABILITY

Overview

A virtual program focusing on global startups that are building innovative solutions to improve environmental sustainability across all industries. The program is designed to support promising companies by offering tailored mentorship, a structured curriculum and introductions to a wide range of ecosystem players promoting sustainability.

Every year, the world adds 51 billion tons of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere, exacerbating climate change and driving up global temperatures, which in turn, traps us in a vicious cycle. The only way to avoid environmental collapse is to take immediate and decisive action to mitigate and reverse the worst impacts of climate change.

There are a number of factors contributing to climate change, all of which are deeply interwoven into our modern way of living. We need to rethink the way we power our cities, we grow our food, we manufacture our goods and the way we get around.

Our belief is that this fundamental challenge can only be solved by technology, innovation and collective action. The CleanTech and Sustainability program aims to play a part in combating climate change by supporting entrepreneurs with disruptive solutions to fight for a more sustainable future.
