Women in Sustainability SeriesIn Conversation with Dr. Christine Loh
Sustainability is a fast evolving must-have agenda in the corporate world, as businesses continue to embed and embrace sustainable business practices to achieve positive impact. There are increasing expectations from citizens and investors on companies to have a positive climate-action focused agenda. At the same time, the risks associated with a lack of climate action by governments and corporations is increasing.
AustCham's Women in Business Network is thrilled to bring our members and friends a new Series highlighting women of impact in the Sustainability field. For our first in-person event we will feature Dr Christine Loh, academic and senior advisor with Teneo, former Undersecretary for the Environment for the Hong Kong government and Founder of non-profit think tank, Civic Exchange. Dr Loh will be joined by Quince Chong, Chief Corporate Development Officer and Director of CLP Power for an engaging conversation.
Join us to hear from Dr Loh on global trends in climate action, her views on the Hong Kong climate action agenda, and opportunities and barriers for business to lead and contribute to sustainability.
The event will include in-person networking, with drinks and canapes, with the opportunity to build relationships and make connections with leading women from the AustCham business community.
