Extreme Weather Takes Heavy Toll, Carbon Reduction a Must in Daily Life, HKWPEA Launches Environment and Conservation Fund Carbon Neutrality Campaign

HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 24 November 2023 – Climate change is causing adverse effects worldwide, including extreme weather events that are becoming increasingly evident and worrying. In response, various regions are actively undertaking green transformation and making every effort to reduce carbon emissions. The Hong Kong SAR Government has set ambitious targets to combat climate change through the ‘Climate Targets of Hong Kong’ initiative aimed at reducing carbon emissions by 50% before 2035 in Hong Kong, and achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. To achieve these goals without eroding our quality of life, it is essential for all citizens and industries to raise their awareness of carbon emissions associated with our daily life: clothing, food, living, and travel. By exploring ways to reduce our carbon footprints, working together to change our habits and embracing sustainable living, we can make a significant contribution to mitigating the effects of climate change.
