HONG KONG PROGRAM

CIRCULAR ECONOMY
Overview

A virtual program focusing on global startups that are developing tech-driven circular economy solutions to enhance sustainability across multiple industries and solve some of the world’s biggest environmental challenges.

Climate change is the defining crisis of our time and nowhere on the planet is immune from the devastating consequences of climate change. To slow down the irreversible damage of climate change, we must bring scalable solutions, sustainable materials and technologies to the fore.

Our current linear economy creates value by producing and selling as many products as possible. After raw materials are extracted, they are transformed into products that are used until they are discarded as waste. With a rapidly growing population, the associated rise in material production and consumer waste are grossly unsustainable.

There is a drastic need to re-evaluate this model. Instead of discarding products, we need to reduce, reuse and recycle the raw materials used in the entire supply chain of production. We must transition to a circular economy in order to survive.

By investing in the circular economy solutions across all sectors, we believe that we can contribute and play our part in slowing down the tide of climate change.
