CUHK Sustainability Conference 2019

CSR & Beyond: The Quest for a Sustainable Future

Venturing into its 12th year, CUHK CSR Conference has, over the years, evolved into a platform for confluence of cross-disciplinary ideas and practices that fuel the engine of sustainable growth.

Sustainability is a world-view that reaches beyond CSR and encompasses emerging approaches such as Environmental-Social-Governance (ESG) initiatives, Socially Responsible Investing (SRI), Impact Investments, Creating Shared Value among others.

Keeping these developments in view, CUHK CSR Conference is now called CUHK Sustainability Conference, a name truly representative of its endeavor towards creating a sustainable world.
