Katie Chan

Business Environment Council

Senior Officer – Policy & Research

Katie works on BEC’s Policy & Research team where she contributes to the development of policy positions on Hong Kong’s existing and emerging environmental challenges and drives the delivery of impactful projects to embed sustainability into business strategy and the city’s broader climate transition. Katie currently leads the team’s nature-related work to narrow the gap between business and nature, incorporate biodiversity considerations into local policy and business decision-making, and supports other sectoral decarbonisation initiatives, such as the aviation sector through sustainable aviation fuel.
Prior to working in Hong Kong, Katie worked in the UK to deliver analysis and thought leadership to impact investors and sustainability-minded corporates on climate change policy, the blue economy, biodiversity and nature conservation. Katie is a Geography graduate of King’s College London.

My Sustainability Goal for 2024:

  • Mainstreaming biodiversity protection into Hong Kong’s business decision-making and policy landscape.
  • Engage key stakeholders and facilitate collaboration to bring about positive and impactful industry change for nature, biodiversity, and the broader environment.
