HKTDC has always been committed to promoting sustainable development in the business community. This year’s Home InStyle features many products that align with the Hong Kong SAR government’s ‘plastic-free’ measures, while Fashion InStyle showcases eco-friendly technologies and products, and launches a new Certification and Trade Services zone to provide sustainability accreditation services. The two fairs also provide eco-labels for exhibitors selling green products, helping the industry promote and source eco-friendly products and solutions.”
