Asia, the home of 60% of the world's people, is on the frontlines of climate change with the growing frequency and severity of natural disasters and extreme weather events. Hong Kong is no exception. Recent record rainfall and severe flooding indicate the impact of extreme weather. The private sector plays an important role in responding to climate change. What is the role of the private sector, and how are leading Hong Kong firms responding to climate change?


Discover the answers in "Building Back Greener: Addressing Climate Change in Asia." In addition to a report presentation from Dr. Ruth Shapiro, the Co-Founder and Chief Executive of Centre for Asian Philanthropy and Society (CAPS), the event promises to be a remarkable gathering of leading business figures who will share perspectives and insights on tackling climate challenges in their respective industries.
