Problem

Are you aware of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?

If you do, you are part of the 15% of Hong Kong’s population who is in the know. Developed by the UN, these interrelated goals are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.

However, a recent report states that Asia and the Pacific will not achieve any of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Goals by 2030. At Encompass, we want to change that. We would like to raise awareness of UN SDGs and promote the behavioral change necessary to achieve them.

Our Mission

Encompass HK is a social enterprise that offers training and consultancy services to educate and support organizations to be more diversified and inclusive, as part of a community effort to meet SDGs.

Encompass HK serves the community by supporting different social causes and NGOs financially as well as through a collaborative model while delivering our SDG programs. We commit to reinvesting at least 60% of any net profits made into achieving our social mission.

Our journey so far

We first started out with organising public events on topics like sustainable coffees or gender equality.

However, we gradually began to diversity by working with other organisations to promote the SDGs. Since summer 2018, we have been gradually gaining momentum with corporate workshops.

In March 2019, we successfully held the first Green Women Festival in HK, which helped us to gain a lot of public attention and media coverage, to promote the SDGs. Moreover, we have worked with a great variety of NGOs to deliver workshops that could make more impact for society.

Our biggest achievement

Surviving and thriving through Green Women Festival! We were able to pull off this event in less than 1 month - and over 400 people attended to hear our environmental message!
