Hong Kong welcomes new climate change agreement

Hong Kong has been actively taking measures to address climate change.

The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government welcomed the new agreement on global actions responding to climate change reached by the 21st session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21) on December 12.

“Hong Kong has been adopting a multi-pronged approach to reduce our carbon emissions, and is committed to reducing carbon intensity by 50 to 60% by 2020 when compared with the 2005 level,” a government spokesman said.

The Hong Kong Climate Change Report 2015 details the efforts of the relevant government departments in addressing the climate change. The Government will continue to review and enhance policies and actions on carbon reduction, and will consider formulating its own carbon reduction targets beyond 2020 in the light of latest developments.
