• BEC EnviroSeries Conference: The making of a low carbon Hong Kong

    30 October 2018

    The Hong Kong SAR Government is in the process of developing Hong Kong’s long-term decarbonisation strategy up to 2050 through stakeholders’ engagement and public consultation. Being a key player in climate mitigation, the business sector is determined to contribute to a low carbon Hong Kong.

    This conference will explore the recent developments, progress, and the next steps in Hong Kong’s transformation towards a low carbon city – feeding into Hong Kong’s long-term decarbonisation strategy. Business champions will share and demonstrate their commitment to decarbonisation through business strategies, innovation and technologies, investment, integrated solutions, partnership and sectoral target-setting. It is hoped that their leadership and action will inspire their peers and the wider community to step up to the challenge of reducing carbon.
