Innovation and having an entrepreneurial spirit are at the heart of everything we do at Jardines. We are thrilled to be part of the innovation community supporting the thriving startup ecosystem in Hong Kong.
Earlier in May, we announced our involvement as an event sponsor of Scaleup Impact Summit 2022 (SIS'22), a global conference for futurists around the world to share deep insights, networks, and provide a unique experience for all.

On Day 1, Head of Sustainability of Jardine Matheson, Nadira Lamrad, Senior Innovation Lead of Jardine Matheson, Janice Wong, and Elfis Lee, Senior Digital Transformation & Innovation Manager of Hongkong Land, spoke together on a panel about "How Corporates and Startups can innovate towards a Sustainable Future".
