Eco Expo Asia 2022 will open from 14 – 17 December at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. The last day (17 December) will be open to the public and online services will run until 24 December. As one of the celebration events of the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), the exhibition will continue to bring together industry leaders from different sectors to transform Hong Kong into a more sustainable and liveable city.
In China, the government’s 14th Five-Year Plan (2021 – 2025) highlights innovations in environmental protection over the next five years with ‘Carbon peak’ and ‘Carbon neutrality’ as major policy goals. These policies have also filtered through to local governments, including the country’s key strategic city cluster, the Guangdong – Hong Kong – Macao Greater Bay Area. In Hong Kong, where targets have been set to achieve carbon neutrality by 20501, the city is also striving to solidify its position as a global green finance hub. To this end, the government issued the Retail Green Bond back in May, valued at HK$20 billion (US$2.5 billion), along with a comprehensive framework of investment allocation.2
The theme of Eco Expo Asia 2022 is “Green Innovations for Carbon Neutrality”, focusing on the technological innovations that will help to decarbonise the world. As an important event for the environmental industry, Eco Expo Asia 2022 will provide a platform for showcasing innovative green products and services, learning about the latest trends and expanding business networks.
Across the show floor, Eco Expo Asia 2022 will present a broad spectrum of green products, innovations and services from a variety of industries. This will include green finance and ESG-related services, eco-friendly products, water treatment and quality management, air quality and more. This year’s fair will also see the return of the Startup Zone and Eco Asia Conference, promising to introduce new trends and technologies.
Eco Expo Asia 2022 will take place from 14 – 17 December at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, with the online services running until 24 December. The fair is jointly organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council and Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd and co-organised by the Environment Bureau of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government.
