With the hybrid series 'Green Solutions from Germany', GCC aims to promote the concept of responsible use of resources in every aspect of our daily lives, both as an integral part of our business philosophy and as global citizens.

Event schedule and topics in this sustainability series:

  • Becoming Carbon Neutral – A Joint Effort by Industry & Policy Makers (25 May 2021)
  • PreZero – Making Waste Management a Strategic Business Unit (23 June 2021)
  • Purpose Strategy: An Embedded ESG Approach (14 July 2021)
  • Green CapEx: An Overview of Funding Sources in Hong Kong (18 August 2021)
  • Making Cities and Buildings Smarter, More Sustainable and the Best Place to Live (15 September 2021)
  • Role of Sustainable Finance in Achieving the Paris Climate Goals (20 October 2021)
  • Sustainably and Ethically Made Toys (14 December 2021)


There is consensus that play is an important part of healthy child development that can bring a lifetime of benefits. Children do not need expensive toys to learn how to use their creativity and develop their physical, cognitive, and emotional abilities.

In the post-pandemic world, children's health and environmental awareness have become ever more important factors in the purchasing decisions of parents. Hence, there has been increasing demand for learning toys that are sustainably and fairly produced (e.g. ethical supply chain standards, non-plastic materials, water-based paints, etc.).

What are the latest trends and solutions in the sustainable toy business? In this hybrid seminar, our speakers will share insights into the developments from the perspective of:

  • Policy measures, such as EU's Circular Economy Action Plan, Sustainable Products Initiative, etc.
  • Initiatives by major retailers
  • Technical aspects for identifying environmental / social aspects


  • This event will run in a hybrid format. Seats for physical participation are limited. Booking priority to members on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • For attendees joining the event virtually, access link for the webinar will be sent 1 day before the event. The session will be conducted via GoToWebinar.
  • Sign up to the 'Community' function if you are interested to exchange contact details with other event attendees. The community function will be activated one week prior to the start of the event.
  • GCC is closely monitoring the Covid-19 situation. Health precaution and social distancing measures will be observed. Physical attendees are required to use the LeaveHomeSafe APP or complete our Health Declaration Form prior to the seminar.
