Net zero is nowadays a target set by many businesses. Some are more ambitious, some are more conservative. If apparel is the sector you are into, jeans in particular, you may find this webinar on demand, hosted by TUV Rheinland, useful.
TÜV Rheinland organised a webinar on green jeans and sustainable fashion, in which world renowned speakers shared their professional views on the impacts of denim on the environment, and what NGOs, brands, and manufacturers are doing in response.
Through this sharing, we hope you will become more aware of the footprint denim has on the world, and have a better understanding on sustainable practices in the fashion and apparel industry, including the application of state of the art technology, employing sustainable processes, and opting for sustainable fibres.

Buildings generate nearly 40% of annual global CO2 emissions, as revealed by architecture2030.org. Among which, building operations are responsible for 28% annually, while building materials and construction (typically referred to as embodied carbon) are responsible for an additional 11% annually.
To combat climate change and achieve carbon neutrality, the building industry has been doing a lot.
In this Matters Lecture, supported by Smart City Consortium, Prof. Ada Fung will talk about the global green building movement, how it is working towards achieving the net zero targets and the health and wellbeing aspects of buildings. Prof Fung will also bring it closer to home by sharing some examples of public housing in Hong Kong, and how they are planned for liveability and sustainability.
