Read the full press release.

The °Climate Group has commissioned the Energy Research Institute of the National Development and Reform Commission to project the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Hong Kong in 2020 and 2030, under the business-as-usual scenario and a “Low Carbon Scenario” (three low carbon scenarios). It is found that through a number of energy and low carbon policies, Hong Kong can achieve a significant reduction in its GHG emissions.

A communication paper is produced based on the modeling work, an analysis on Hong Kong’s past emission and economic development trends, and a series of stakeholder interviews conducted previously. The paper gives a vision on what Hong Kong could achieve in terms of carbon reduction, and what roles Hong Kong can play within China’s low carbon plan.

A small-scale roundtable event will be held to provide a platform to discuss how Hong Kong could achieve the low carbon vision and contribute to China’s low carbon development, specifically on Hong Kong’s integration into the Pearl River Delta Region in the Guangdong Province. Government officials from Guangdong and Hong Kong, as well as local stakeholders from businesses and NGOs will be invited to the event.

Key speakers (launch event):

    • Dr. Kejun Jiang, Director of Research Management and International Collaboration Division, Energy Research Institute
    • Mr. Yaojun Lin, Director of Resource Conservation, Environment and Climate Change, Guangdong Development and Reform Commission
    • Prof. Wanda Guo, Vice President, China Development Institute
