Following the successfully held Sino-Swiss Economic Forum in November 2020, where various industry leaders from the Sino-Swiss business community discussed about topics related to sustainable business practice and models, we would like to continue the dialogue in our upcoming working group on “Sustainable Nutrition & Healthcare”.

The working group is led by Mr. David Wang, CEO China at KingNature. KingNature is a Swiss company that develops, produces and distributes highquality dietary supplements, functional food products and cosmetics with finest Swiss natural ingredients. In the framework of sustainable nutrition and healthcare, the working group will gather industry experts as well as guest speakers.

The UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the UN Agenda for 2030, were established as a universal call for action to protect the planet by all nations. Sustainable development is also a key agenda in the Chinese government’s 14th five-year plan, ensuring people healthy lives and promoting well-being at all ages.

Participants are also invited to take part to the Sino-Swiss Business Award in October 2021, which will celebrate the efforts in the field of sustainability of many companies within the Sino-Swiss community.

Introduction of Sustainability

The UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals were established and accepted by all UN members in 2015, as part of the UN 2030 Agenda, which is a universal call for action to protect the planet by all nations. Thus, no matter a nation is poor or rich, all of them need to collaborate closely to protect our planet while finding ways to eradicate poverty and develop the economy sustainably. In order to carry out a sustainable economy that has to adopt strategies to handle a wide range of social needs, such as education, health, social protection, and deal with environmental protection simultaneously. Please check the following link to find out more about those 17 Goals.

Sustainable development is also a key agenda in the Chinese government’s new five-year plan. It calls for action to accelerate the construction of ecological civilization, and continue to reduce the emissions of major pollutants and carbon intensity, while promoting the comprehensive green transformation of economic and social development. On this basis, the plan calls for carrying out activities to create a green life, and formulate an action plan to reduce carbon emission before its peak by 2030.

Additionally, ensuring people’s healthy lives and promoting well-being also occupies a strategic position in the 14th five-year plan, which is also essential to sustainable development. Together with further policies to support the healthcare industry, can release dynamic economic forces to enhance food and drug safety and well-being at all ages as well as other products or services that are important to people’s health. Among the healthcare industry, health education, chronic disease management, and disability rehabilitation services, as well as mental health, will be emphasized. Its lofty goal is to build a global community of health for all.

Among the 17 Sustainable Goals, those goals are closely related to the working group topic of “Sustainable Nutrition & Healthcare”, such as Goal 3 Good Health and Well-Being, Goal 6 Clean Water and Sanitation, and Goal 2 Zero Hunger. Thus, increasing healthcare products and services as well as sustainable food production is vital to assist in improving humankind’s nutrition & health. Additionally, combining with Chinese the 14th five-year plan, it also shows a strong connection with nutrition and healthcare.

在中国政府提出的新的一轮五年计划中,推动可持续发展将是一个重点议题。其中在促经济社会发展的全面绿色转型的同时,加快生态文明建设,并持续减少主要污染物的排放量和碳排放强度,在此基础上开展绿色生活创建活动,并制定2030年前碳排放达峰值行动方案。

另外,人民健康问题也是五年计划中占据战略位置。中国把保障人民健康放置在优先战略位置,大力发展医药事业和健康产业,提高食品药品等关系人民健康产品和服务的安全保障水平。同时提升健康教育、慢性病管理和残疾康复服务质量,并重视精神卫生和心理健康。在国际合作上,积极参与重大传染病防控国际合作,推动构建人类卫生健康共同体。
