Climate Change – the next steps Hong Kong must take
8:00-9:30am. Hong Kong wishes to contribute actively to the national and global effort to cut carbon emissions that the world needs in order to maintain the 2°C warming scenario within this century. The Hong Kong Government has set targets to reduce carbon intensity by 50 per cent to 60 per cent by 2020, compared with the level in 2005 and through various efforts, Hong Kong is on track to meet this target. The Steering Committee on Climate Change chaired by the Chief Secretary for Administration has been steering and co-ordinating the climate actions of relevant government bureaus and departments, and is looking ahead to the next steps that Hong Kong needs to take to achieve its longer term goals in the next decade and more. In this talk, the Under Secretary for the Environment, Ms.
Christine Loh, will set out the key factors that Hong Kong needs to take into account in planning for a more climate-friendly future, look ahead to the major initiatives which can help deliver it and highlight the contributions needed from government, the business sector and the wider community.
