Detail: “2017 Sustainable Development International Forum” was successfully held in 24 June in Macao Science Centre. Around 120 participants attended the Forum.

Junior Chamber International Macao, China (JCI Macao, China) is the pioneer of introducing the concept of “Corporate Social Responsibility” to Macao since 2007. In the past decade, we have made a tremendous success in promoting and showcasing the innovative ideas of CSR to our local corporates. This year, we want to make a bit change. In response to the strategic plan of the “17-Sustainable Development Goals” from United Nations (UNSDGs) and the “Five-Year Development Plan” of Macao S.A.R. (2016-2020), we extend our theme to Sustainability and hold “2017 Sustainable Development International Forum” this year.

We have invited 3 keynote speakers: Mr Brian Ho from Climate Change and Sustainability Services of Ernst & Young, to briefly introduce what are the UNSDGs, why we need them, and how we could accomplish the goals; Mr Morse Lei from Macao Association of Environmental Protection Industry and Macao Residue System Company Limited to provide the general information about how they are dealing with the solid waste pollution; Mr Dai Xiaoji from Sound Group Limited to provide alternatives and solutions to help Macau to acquire clean energy, and turn itself to be a sustainable city.
