Civic Exchange’s report Cruise Ship Emissions and Control in Hong Kong aims to provide timely information regarding cruise ship emissions in Hong Kong for thorough discussions between the government, business sectors and the general public on the issues, before the opening of Kai Tak Cruise Terminal in June this year. Emission estimates for cruise ships to be using Kai Tak Cruise Terminal are produced. Recommendations to control emissions are also provided in the report.
