Hong Kong Rugby

The HKRU, as a National Sports Association and organiser of the annual Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens, recognises that sport is an important enabler of sustainable development. Sport speaks to young people in a language they understand and can provide a platform for making sustainability relevant, engaging and fun. Through the work of our Community Foundation, we are striving to make a positive contribution to the health, education and social inclusion SDGs. Our ‘Green 7s’ campaign has twice been recognised as a “Green Outdoor Event” by the Environmental Campaign Committee, has been endorsed by the Government as a certified Green Event partner, and received a Hong Kong Award for Environmental Excellence in 2018. In February 2019, the HKRU became the world’s first Rugby Union to become a signatory of the UN Sports for Action Climate Change pledge.
