The fair specialises in the business-to-government (B2G) and business-to-business (B2B) sectors, and provides exhibitors direct access to the Chinese mainland and other emerging Asian markets.

With a proven track record of success that spans over a decade, Eco Expo Asia not only receives extensive recognition from the Hong Kong and Chinese mainland governments, but it is also endorsed by various international government bodies and influential trade associations.

Asia: Key driver of green growth
With the commitment to the COP21 climate pact, countries across the globe are setting forth ambitious emission targets in their development agendas. Governments worldwide, particularly in Asia, are also initiating various measures towards attracting greater investments in sustainable buildings, contributing to the enormous growth of the market. It is expected that the global revenue for the market will increase from USD 307 billion in 2014 to nearly USD 623 billion by 2023.

Chinese mainland to move forward with green energy development
Under the 13th Five-Year Plan, the Chinese mainland has pledged to drastically reduce CO2 emissions and increase the use of non-fossil energies to 15% of the total energy mix by 2020. Coupled with greater economic integration spurred by the “Belt and Road” initiative, the cumulative investment in non-fossil fuels and low-carbon technologies in the country is forecasted to exceed USD 6.26 trillion by 2030. 

Hong Kong determined to meet waste management goals
In addition to a series of actions targeted at drastically cutting food waste and municipal solid waste levels, the Hong Kong government has recently dedicated a recycling fund worth USD 129 million towards stimulating the city’s recycling industry. Furthermore, over USD 2.46 billion will be allocated to the development of the Integrated Waste Management Facilities Phase 1 and a further USD 70 million to building a waste electrical and electronic equipment recycling facility.
