Sense and Sustainability
Sense and Sustainability - S1E3: A Sweeter Spot
Third-generation sugar maker, John Cheng believes there is a strong business case for going green. We follow his journey to revolutionise the food industry, starting with his own business.
In recent years, Asia has been trying to clean up its reputation as the world’s most polluting region. This documentary series casts the spotlight on a new breed of eco-warriors who are driving a green revolution in the region. They are neither activists, nor scientists but heirs to prominent family empires. These successors are less concerned with their inheritance, than the world, which future generations will be inheriting.
The series profiles three young scions who are seeking to transform their family businesses into models for sustainable development. We follow them as they overcome obstacles – sometimes from within their ranks, to implement industry-wide solutions and prove that sustainability and profitability can indeed go hand-in-hand.
