Design Thinking Training Series for Sustainability & ESG Management

Design Thinking is a crucial approach for Sustainability and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Management due to its user-centered, innovative, and holistic characteristics. It provides a robust framework for addressing the complex, intertwined challenges of Sustainability and ESG Management. It fosters a culture of innovation, involves diverse stakeholders in the decision-making process, and focuses on long-term, sustainable solutions, making it essential for organizations committed to improving their environmental and social impacts.

In fact, we collaborated with the Urban Renewal Authority to revitalize the Kowloon Town district. This community development initiative focused on rebranding the community and redesigning its public facilities. The reimagined brand will transform the citizen and traveler experience from negative to positive, achieving a predicted 48% increase in emotional impact. This successful project was documented in the Hong Kong Design Thinking Business Casebook 2022.
