Overview

As part of Hong Kong’s goal to achieve carbon neutrality before 2050, the government has set targets to develop adequate waste-to-energy facilities, move away from reliance on landfills for municipal waste disposal, promote waste reduction and recycling, implement waste charging and regulate disposable plastic tableware in phases, amongst other policies.

Learnings

  • What instrumental role does the waste and resource management sector play in combatting climate change and helping our city achieve its net-zero ambitions?
  • How can we drive innovation and improve the technologies and processes used in waste and resource management, as well as invest in research and training in mitigation strategies?
  • What opportunities and barriers exist for the sector to align strategies with wider decarbonisation policies and efforts by public and private sector stakeholders?

Post Event Actions

  • Understand the state of play in Hong Kong and the region, and opportunities for the waste and resource management sector to contribute to a net-zero future for Hong Kong.
  • Consider how your company and industry can work with waste and resource professionals to capitalise on the opportunities presented by our decarbonisation ambitions.
