Hong Kong Ambassadors Club Facilitates Agreement between Bridge ME and Plant-Based Meat Provider Green Monday Following COP28 UAE
(Hong Kong, 20 December 2023) Following the successful participation at the 28th Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (“COP28”) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (“UAE”), the Hong Kong Ambassadors Club (“HKAC”) facilitated an agreement between Tsangs Group’s strategic advisory vehicle Bridge ME Limited and Green Monday Holdings, the Asian pioneer in plant-based movement and food technology innovation, in which agreed to transform the green visions expressed at Hong Kong Climate Day during COP28 into action by entering into a partnership. The partnership will be continuously supported by the HKAC.
In response to the pressing challenges of climate change, food insecurity, public health crises, planetary devastation, and animal welfare, the partnership strategically aims to elevate global awareness of plant-based meat’s environmental benefits, expand Tsangs Group’s investment into green and environmental funds, and transform Green Monday into a globally recognised sustainable food brand. With the support of Bridge ME, Green Monday is poised to expand into the MENA region (Middle East and North Africa markets).
“The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China has always been one step ahead when accelerating global trends. By sealing the visionary partnership between Bridge ME and Green Monday, supported by HKAC, Hong Kong moves again into the spotlight of the Belt and Road Initiative, and we are confident this partnership will be a role model for similar ties between China and the Gulf region following the successful COP28 UAE,” commented The Hon Jeffrey Lam, GBM, GBS, JP, Member of Legislative Council and Executive Council of Hong Kong SAR Government, Director of Bridge ME Limited.
“This year’s COP28 in UAE shows that more urgently than ever we need collaborative climate solutions on a global level. Early this year the UAE Minister of Economy also highlighted that the challenges for food are real and imminent, and that food security is a high priority. Therefore, we are proud to partner with Bridge ME and Tsangs Group to expand into the MENA markets. With their strong resources and network, we believe there is great need and potential for alternative protein as well as sustainable food innovation,“ commented David Yeung, Co-founder and CEO of Green Monday.
“Green investments are no longer a ‘nice to have’ for PR purposes, but a solid pillar of any investment portfolio. At Tsangs Group, we always let words follow actions that lead to long-term commitments by ourselves and our stakeholders, and we are proud to welcome Green Monday as our latest business partner. Green Monday was introduced to an international group of investors and climate activists at Hong Kong Climate Day which we proudly co-organised together with the HKAC at COP28,” commented Patrick Tsang, Chairman of Tsangs Group and Director of Bridge ME Limited.
The initiative to present Hong Kong as the green metropolis of the future received the strong support of The Hon Jeffrey Lam, GBM, GBS, JP and Patrick Tsang; they will act as advisors to Green Monday, exemplifying their dedication to environmental stewardship and sustainable development.
The formation of this partnership, immediately following the conclusion of COP28, demonstrates the commitment of Tsangs Group and Green Monday to spearhead impactful climate actions in 2024 and beyond.
