International Cooperation: Supporting Hong Kong’s Transition to Net Zero

Day 1 : 14:05 – 14:45

International cooperation serves as an essential tool in combating the climate crisis, as it can help cultivate a global economy dedicated to addressing this challenge. Not only must we focus on synergistically aligning the work of the private and public sectors within Hong Kong, but also promoting international cooperation to achieve net-zero emissions goals. 

This fireside chat will explore the challenges Hong Kong faces in its transition to net-zero from a global perspective, focusing on the role of international cooperation in reducing rising greenhouse gas emissions. Our experts will share key insights into the necessity of countries pooling resources and expertise, whether in the context of green technology, sustainable policies, or global climate finance. The discussion will explore the power of joint climate mitigation and adaptation strategies, particularly in the context of Hong Kong. 


  • How can we prioritize international cooperation as a driver for Hong Kong’s transition to net-zero? 
  • What are the respective roles of cross-sectoral collaboration and international collaboration in forming climate mitigation and adaptation strategies? 
  • What are some case studies demonstrating how international cooperation has impacted the global achievement of net-zero emissions goals?
