Public Engagement on Review of AQOs - Possible New Air Quality Improvement Measures

(The Public Engagement Exercise ended on 14 October 2017. Thank you for your support.)

The Environment Bureau embarked on the Review in mid-2016. An AQOs Review Working Group with dedicated Sub-groups on four key aspects, namely air science and health, road transportation, marine transportation, and energy and power generation, have been formed to deliberate on the possible new air quality improvement measures and the assessments of the practicability of their implementation to identify possible scope to further tighten the AQOs. The practicability of the individual possible new measures were grouped into four categories :

Short term Likely to produce results by 2025 or earlier
Medium term Maybe ready for consideration in the next AQOs Review period
Long term Require detailed planning or further study to ascertain the practicability for implementation beyond the next Review period
Others Considered as not practicable, short of air quality benefits or not suitable to be considered under the current scope of the Review
