In 2015, the United Nations adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals, calling on every stakeholder across the globe to promote the sustainable transformation of society in a collaborative effort. The application of innovation and technology plays a key role in this transformation process, in order to achieve the sustainable development goals, notably SDG 9 – Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure. Innovation and Technology also provide game-changing opportunities and methods to achieve the other Sustainable Development Goals.
The 2023 Hong Kong Sustainable Development Innovation and Technology Award is organised by the World Institute of Sustainable Development Planners, and supported by the Hong Kong Institute of Education for Sustainable Development and the Hong Kong Quality Assurance Agency. It is also funded by the Hong Kong Innovation and Technology Commission (ITC) and sponsored by Arte Moda International Enterprises. The Award aims to reward organisations and talents in various industries to promote the integration of sustainable development values into the research, development, planning and applications of innovative technologies in their respective industries. There are over 45 awards for organisations and individuals across 9 industries. The awards actively encourage and call on organisations and talents from different industries to demonstrate the application of innovation and technology in promoting sustainable development.
