Henry Cheng International Conference Centre
Organized by CUHK CSR Club
Venturing into its 12th year, CUHK CSR Conference has, over the years, evolved into a platform for confluence of cross-disciplinary ideas and practices that fuel the engine of sustainable growth.
Sustainability is a world-view that reaches beyond CSR and encompasses emerging approaches such as Environmental-Social-Governance (ESG) initiatives, Socially Responsible Investing (SRI), Impact Investments, Creating Shared Value among others.
