Event Details

More and more organisations are developing clear ambitions to build a more sustainable business model with publicly accountable commitments to improve their performance on issues relating to the environment, society and governance (ESG). We will explore whether businesses in Hong Kong and the Asia region view ESG as an opportunity or a challenge and what progress they are making.

Please note that this event is limited to senior-level executives and per invitation only. If you are not an existing member of The Economist Intelligence Corporate Network, but would like to learn how you can attend our events, please contact us at eicn_hongkong@economist.com
