Actions in Hong Kong

Climate change is a global challenge that calls for global actions. Hong Kong is committed to working closely with the international community to combat climate change. In the past decade, a string of measures have also been implemented to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.

Actions in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a service-based city and we do not have energy-intensive industries. Our major contributor of greenhouse gases is from power generation and the transport sector.  To reduce our carbon footprint, the most direct and effective method therefore would be to enhance the overall energy efficiency of our society.  To this end, Hong Kong, alongside 20 other Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation (APEC) economies, has set a target to achieve a reduction in energy intensity of at least 25% by 2030 (with 2005 as the base year).

Recognising the need to step up climate actions and to draw up long-term policies, the Government has set up a Steering Committee on Climate Change under the chairmanship of the Chief Secretary for Administration to steer and coordinate the climate actions of various bureaux and departments.
