The Ninth Eco Expo Asia Returns in October
Creating a Sustainable City: Use Less, Waste Less
26 March 2014 – The ninth Eco Expo Asia will be running from 29 October to 1 November at the AsiaWorld-Expo, showcasing top-notch green products, technologies and solutions. Latest industry news will be unveiled and industry players will be able to grasp tremendous business opportunities.
Speaking at a networking luncheon related to the Eco Expo Asia, The Secretary for the Environment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), Mr Wong Kam-sing, expressed the Eco Expo Asia had been becoming more and more popular in Hong Kong, the Chinese mainland and the world. Its rich contents were able to foster the development of industry and enhance public environmental awareness.
Mr Wong addressed recent measures on environment protection by the government. “A Clean Air Plan for Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Blueprint for Sustainable Use of Resources 2013 – 2022 had put forward comprehensive strategies to build a sustainable city, such as A Food Waste & Yard Waste Plan for Hong Kong 2014 – 2022, phasing out pre-euro IV diesel commercial vehicles, reference to Waste to Energy technologies of Denmark, promotion of use less and waste less”, said Mr Wong.
Mr Randy Yu, General Manager of Sino Land Company Limited was also invited. He expressed Sino had established the Sustainability Committee in 2010, which optimised the planning and execution of the strategy to build a more sustainable business. Strategies included landscape design, energy saving, promoting sustainable seafood, striving to provide green environment to tenants, customers and staffs. “One of the good applications for green features, in particular the vertical green system of Citywalk, succeeds in saving energy by reducing ambient temperature. The installation of a high-efficiency food decomposer in a shopping mall is also a good example”, said Mr Yu.
Organised by the HKTDC and Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, and co-organised by the Environment Bureau of the Government of the HKSAR, the event will be open to trade visitors for the first three days and the public on its final day for free admission.
“Eco Expo Asia showcases worldwide innovative green products and services, such as waste management and recycling, green building solution and energy efficiency. It has been a great international industry platform and successful in fostering the development of green technology”, said Mr Benjamin Chau, Deputy Executive Director of the HKTDC. “Last year, there were 297 exhibitors from 19 countries and regions, and reached nearly 13,000 trade buyers, representing a 12% increase compared to 2012 Fair.”
