The Hong Kong Business Coalition on the Environment (BCE) is a partnership of various business and private sector organisations formed to create a coherent voice addressing environmental matters. It aims to promote greater environmental awareness, responsibility and performance in the business community and to act as a catalyst for Government actions and policy changes toward an improved environment for Hong Kong. It also seeks to promote environmental cooperation and awareness in the Pearl River Delta.
The founding members of the BCE are the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce, American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong, Canadian Chamber of Commerce and the Business Environment Council. The BCE is led by a Convenor. The Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce serves as the Secretariat.
Membership has now expanded to 33 business associations and professional bodies, including foreign chambers of commerce resident in Hong Kong:
The BCE does not seek to usurp the very valuable work on the environment being carried out by its individual members but to complement their efforts.
