3:15 – 4:30pm Remarks

Hosted by the  Transportation & Logistics Committee 

Emissions from ships contribute significantly to the air pollution inventories of Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta. Comprehensively solving this problem will require a mix of local, national, and international action.

The panel will outline the contribution of ocean-going vessels to Hong Kong's emissions inventories, and will use case studies from California, the United States, and Europe to illustrate actions that can be taken by Hong Kong, the Chinese government, and the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to dramatically reduce ship pollution in Hong Kong.
Special focus will be given to programs that have been adopted in the United States and Europe that successfully provided emissions reductions in advance of IMO action. In addition, the presentation will include a roadmap of steps to be taken in order to establish an Emissions Control Area for the Pearl River Delta.
