My Sustainability Goals for 2023:
I would like to see Hong Kong make substantial progress in real implementable planning and financing for the electrification of the commercial fleets (bus, public light bus, light and medium duty vehicles). Commercial vehicles are a major source of carbon emissions as well as air pollution.
