The HKSAR Government is formulating effective implementation plans and drafting the enabling legislation to give effect to the municipal solid waste (MSW) charging. Mr K S Wong, Secretary for the Environment, has been invited to introduce the framework and implementation arrangements of the forthcoming charging scheme. He will be joined by the following three commentators, who will share about the best practices of business in waste management and their views on the proposed charging arrangements:
  • Mr Mike Kilburn, Acting General Manager, Sustainability, Airport Authority
  • Mr William Lin, Director, Environmental Management, Business Environment Council
  • Ir Cary Chan, Executive Director, Hong Kong Green Building Council
  • Mr Benson Pau, CEO, Wings Trading (HK) Co Ltd
  • Dr William Yu, CEO, World Green Organisation

MSW charging will be implemented in all sectors in one go. The implementation arrangement will be compatible with the current collection and disposal systems, and supported by other complementary measures. Through the forum, we would be able to understand more and be prepared for the implementation of the charging scheme.

The forum is organized by the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce, and co-organized by the American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong, Australian Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong, British Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong, Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong, and Hong Kong Green Building Council and World Green Organisation.

This event is hosted by Environment Committee
