Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
HKUST is one of the fastest growing universities in the world. HKUST was looking to maintain its leadership position in sustainability. We designed a programme to support stakeholder engagement including with large scale caterers across 8 universities and tenants. Training and strategy workshops on food sustainability, enabled businesses to identify challenges and take action.

“Our University prides itself in our aggressive approach to sustainability, meaning we set difficult targets and then challenge ourselves to develop creative solutions that are performance-based, data-driven, and create positive impacts for our community.
