Abstract:As a responsible member of the global community, Hong Kong is obliged to draw up its own long-term decarbonisation strategy up to 2050 by 2020, and review our climate change efforts every five years. The HKSARGovernment has therefore invited the Council for Sustainable Development to launch a territory-wide public engagement exercise to gauge the views of the public and different stakeholders in formulating an aspirational yetachievable deep decarbonisation strategy, charting practical pathways, and mobilising stronger climate mitigation actions across different sectors of the society, thereby contributing to the global decarbonisation effort.Following the launch of the public engagement on 14 June 2019, this briefing session aims to engage the society to leverage their expertise and insights on possible climate mitigation actions to reduce carbon emissions in the HongKong context. Discussion topics will include the transition towards low-carbon lifestyles, reducing energy use and further decarbonising electricity generation and the development of low carbon transport, amongst others.
