This event is organised by the The French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Hong Kong


The sustainability challenges we face are not looming in the future. They are pressing on us today. Consumers and stakeholders increasingly demand greater transparency on the origins of products. Where they come from, what they contain, how they were made.


These are the stakes: As a global society, we are already exceeding the limits of the planet's natural commodities. Continue as normal and we will need the equivalent resources of two planet earths by 2030. Retailers and industry have an essential role to play in reversing this worrying and inevitable trend.


Throughout the day, sourcing experts, NGOs, brands, manufacturers and retailers will share how to overcome the challenges to implement responsible business practices and explore a renewed approach for sourcing.


Join the 10th edition of French Chamber's annual sourcing symposium and get key insight to drive change and shape a new sourcing industry model. It's time to walk the walk.


Why you should attend:

  • Learn from 15+ expert speakers from leading companies and organisations
  • Meet 200 decision-makers and key players in the sourcing industry
  • Networking opportunities throughout the day
