Knowledge Primer 2 – “Innovation for Sustainability: Improving Corporate Innovation Capacity”
7th January 2022 (Friday)
14:30 - 16:30

You are cordially invited to the second Knowledge Primer (KP2) titled “Innovation for Sustainability: Improving Corporate Innovation Capacity” under the Partnership for Sustainability Leadership in Business (PSLB), initiated by the Centre for Civil Society and Governance (CCSG) of The University of Hong Kong.

The surge in attention to corporates’ environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance and demand for corporate actions on environmental and social challenges calls for a shifting mindset from conceiving businesses as merely product and service providers in economic terms, to ones that create environmental and social values. When the conventional ways of doing business are deemed unsustainable to the society, building a company’s innovative capacity is key to transit towards sustainability.

PSLB’s second Knowledge Primer (KP2) will shed light on the approaches to building corporate innovation capacity for attaining sustainability goals. The KP includes a panel discussion where distinguished practitioners will exchange views on how new technologies, cross-sector partnership, business incubation and creative employee engagement etc. could improve the innovation capacity of companies to drive more sustainability solutions.
