The balance between economic growth and sustainability has been a long-standing challenge. This event is going to explore replicable practices to turn social responsibilities into business opportunities, by exchanging insights on technology innovations and corporate governance, sharing lessons learned from strategy making to daily operation, by voices from academia and industries including new energy, manufacturing, agriculture, digital economy, healthcare, etc. This event will also catalyze and encourage voluntary commitments from all parties, to pursue a green and sustainable development through concrete steps.

Every country, every sector and every business faces specific challenges. Only communication, mutual understanding and collaborative partnerships can bridge differences and form wide coalitions towards the common goal of sustainable development, for our shared planet, for humanity’s shared future.
