The Italian Chamber of Commerce Hong Kong and Macao in collaboration with the Women's Leadership Network Committee (WLN) will be hosting our second in-person event of the year, we will be discussing what ESG and sustainability means in the post pandemic environment and how leaders can most effectively address them. 

Unlike sustainability which can mean different things to different companies, ESG provides a specific set of criteria — namely, environmental, social, and governance — that companies can measure and report against, making it a much more specific and data-driven tool against which to measure one's results and activities. During this event we will discuss how leaders can achieve these goals interdependently; creating good jobs, promoting gender equality, helping the environment as well as having good client relationships without compromising its investment principles.
