“Taking Ownership: A Roadmap for Supply Chain Decarbonisation”

A global ecosystems concerned forum “Taking Ownership: A Roadmap for Supply Chain Decarbonisation” was held on 05 October 2022 in HKCEC. It was one of the main sessions in a sustainable business forum & solution expo, with over 3,000 business leaders, sustainability practitioners, and professionals who are responsible for researching and resourcing new sustainable strategies as attendees. Dr Eugene Wong, Director in PRISC and Associate Professor in HSUHK, was invited to be the moderator.

The forum was organized by ReThink Hong Kong. It was sponsored by HSBC and supported by Hong Kong Green Finance Association and Sustainable Finance Initiative.

The forum was moderated by Dr. Eugene Wong. Four other speakers were also invited to the speak floor, including Ms. Jenny Fan, Director of  Sustainable Finance in ANZ; Mr. Chaminda Gunasekera, Senior Director of Asia Pacific in Seko Logistics Limited; Ms. Mitsuko Wong, Sustainability Lead of Product and Supply Chain in Ralph Lauren; Ms. Sophie You, Principal Consultant in RESET Carbon Limited.

Speakers have had discussion on several topics, including (1) the biggest challenges to companies seeking to decarbonise their supply chains, (2) some concrete steps companies can take to incentivise supply chain decarbonisation, and translate ambition into action, (3) roles for financial sector to play in incentivising supply chain behaviours, and in helping businesses navigate emerging supply chain challenges and opportunities, and (4) perspectives from finance, technology, new forms of retail, the identification of a robust inventory of GHGs, as well as the articulation of intention and engagement with suppliers and both internal and external stakeholders beyond the buying-supplying level.

There were two post-event actions being drawn: (1) to gain insights on concrete steps that companies are taking to decarbonise their supply chains in order to build and maintain positive relationships with suppliers and (2) to understand that the global nature of many supply chains allows companies to support decarbonisation beyond our borders.
