French Chamber is supporting the HK Institution of engineers for its webinar on decarbonisation part of The HKIE Environmental Division Annual Forum.

 

Further to the public engagement exercise on the long‐term Decarbonisation for Hong Kong undertaken by the Council for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement with nearly 200 signatories, Hong Kong, like other developed countries and world cities, should share its climate responsibility, especially to address extreme weather conditions arisen in recent years and set Decarbonisation target.

In the Chief Executive’s 2020 Policy Address, Hong Kong will strive for carbon neutrality by 2050. This long‐term vision to progressively advance to net zero carbon emissions, decarbonisation will be a major challenge and opportunity to drive changes in our city and our lifestyle.  The primary objectives of this forum are to serve as a platform to communicate and review Decarbonisation strategies; share local and international practices and explore relevant digitalization & innovation for Decarbonisation. At the same time, we would like to know how technologies and development can become critical enablers for the transformation and present both opportunities and challenges to engineers.

The forum comprises the keynote session and four other sessions: i) Green construction; ii) Decarbonising generation through digitalization; iii) Hydrogen economy and iv) Experience sharing and best practices for Decarbonisation.
