Civic Exchange is an independent Hong Kong public-policy think tank established in 2000.
We use in-depth research and dialogue to inform policy and engage stakeholders on addressing environmental and development challenges in Hong Kong. Our research covers four areas that make up a liveable city: environmental, economic, social, and governance. Civic Exchange has been ranked among the top 50 environmental think tanks in the world by the Lauder Institute at the University of Pennsylvania since 2011.
“Hong Kong 2050 is Now” is a flagship programme under Civic Exchange, and was established jointly with the World Resources Institute (WRI), ADM Capital Foundation, and RS Group in 2019, with the aim of mobilising action to transition Hong Kong towards long term carbon neutrality by mid-century.
