What's On

Climate change is a defining challenge of our time. Not only do climate-related risks threaten the natural environment and livelihoods, they also bring material impacts on business activities and operations which businesses can ill afford to ignore.

To achieve the goal of carbon neutrality before 2050, the Hong Kong Government is stepping up decarbonisation efforts to transition the city into a low-carbon and sustainable economy through enhancing energy efficiency, promoting green transport as well as waste reduction. How can these measures facilitate Hong Kong's green transformation? What can businesses do to help turn the tide against climate change while building resilience against climate impacts?

Join us on 13 February when the Hon Tse Chin-wan, Secretary for Environment and Ecology, will address the Chamber to share the Government's environment and sustainability objectives as set out in the Chief Executive's 2022 Policy Address. Places are limited, so book early to secure your seat to hear from and share your thoughts with the Secretary for Environment and Ecology.
