The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged businesses regardless of industry, size and location to adapt to the new normal through changing the way they operate, collaborate and create impact. This inaugural Knowledge Primer (KP) will focus on how businesses should integrate sustainability principles and best practices into their operations for minimising risks and leveraging new opportunities in the region with a view to attaining long-term resilience in the value chains. At the event, the programme will also officially launch the Sustainable Value Chains (SVC) Commitment and SMEs Sustainability Leadership Recognition Scheme, which connect large corporates and SMEs and provide capacity building resources to co-create SVC in Hong Kong and the region.
