Sustainability Committee

Chair: Torbjörn Magnusson, HL Display

SwedCham has worked actively with environmental protection for many years. Now the scope has broadened in response to the numerous sustainability challenges we face today. Numerous members – individuals and corporations – are committed to take a leadership role in adopting sustainable business practices in Hong Kong and beyond. The SwedCham Sustainability Committee serves as a platform to further support and enhance that ambition. SwedCham has a strong track record of successfully working with Hong Kong’s policy makers for a more sustainable society.

Activities in SwedCham’s Sustainability Committee fall into several different categories:

  • organizing events such as chamber breakfasts or lunches with sustainability experts
  • lobbying for more sustainable business practices in Hong Kong and beyond
  • engaging the business community in Hong Kong to be proactive in the change towards a more sustainable society
  • arranging visits to companies and organizations who are leaders in sustainability
  • organizing member activities with a sustainability focus

The Sustainability committee also writes articles on topics related to sustainability. We have gathered the recent work from the committee here.
