Long-term Decarbonisation Strategy Public Engagement

icon date s Friday 12 Jul 2019

Climate change is now affecting every corner of the Earth.  Like other coastal cities, Hong Kong faces multiple climate-related threats, including rising temperatures and more extreme weather events.  In 2015, 196 signatories adopted the historic Paris Agreement.  The Agreement aims at combating climate change and unleashing actions towards a low-carbon, resilient and sustainable future.  As the Paris Agreement applies to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, it is Hong Kong’s obligation to formulate its own long-term decarbonisation strategy up to 2050 by 2020, and review its climate change efforts every 5 years.

The Council for Sustainable Development is running a public engagement exercise to gauge the public’s views on a long-term decarbonisation strategy. Public views on the following three major aspects are invited:

  • Transition towards a low-carbon society
  • Reducing energy use and further decarbonising electricity generation
  • Low-carbon transport in a smart city

We sincerely invite you to join the public forums organised by the Council to share your views on the above issues.  Details of the public forums are as follows:
