About the project
The Business for Good project was a collaborative research project between HKSEF, Social Innovation Exchange, InnoFoco and EY on what it takes to bring about the change in Hong Kong. The research project consisted of a scan of global trends and stocktaking of the situation in Hong Kong, interviews with business leaders in Hong Kong and around the world and an online survey with the Hong Kong community. The research provided actionable recommendations on how we can catalyse the development of business for social good in Hong Kong.
