Join this hybrid conference to find out how Hong Kong businesses will join force in the race to net-zero carbon

 

The 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (“COP26”) was concluded in Glasgow, United Kingdom in November last year with mixed feelings. Some were disappointed by the outcome, notably the Glasgow Climate Pact’s agreement to “phase down” rather than “phase out” coal.

Others welcomed the reaffirmed recognition of the importance of keeping 1.5 degrees within reach by mid-century, and an agreed framework under the Pact to bridge the gaps between ambition and a 1.5-degree future. One thing though is clear: the key to success is to convert pledges into actions, and to solicit support from corporates and other stakeholders in accelerating and scaling the transition to a net-zero world.

Last October, the Hong Kong SAR Government announced a four-pronged decarbonisation strategy under Hong Kong’s Climate Action Plan 2050 – net-zero electricity generation, energy saving and green buildings, green transport, and waste reduction – with an interim target to half Hong Kong’s carbon emissions before 2035 compared to the 2005 level, and to ultimately achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

In light of this, the Conference aims to prepare and galvanise Hong Kong businesses to join force in the race to net-zero carbon. Specifically, the Conference will (a) showcase the importance of setting ambition and taking early business action, (b) discuss how innovation and partnership can bridge the gap between pledges and action, and (c) inspire BEC members and the private sector to transform for a net-zero and sustainable Hong Kong.

Session 1: The State of Climate Ambition and Action

Session 2: Scaling Net-Zero Transition through Innovation and Digital Transformation
