The seminar aims to launch the “Fair Winds Charter” report, which documents Civic Exchange and other key stakeholders’ 10-year effort to tackle the problems of ship emissions and air pollution in Hong Kong. The charter, a voluntary initiative led by the shipping industry requiring ocean-going vessels to switch to a less polluting fuel while at berth, was the first of its kind in Asia and a landmark achievement. An eminent panel of speakers discussed the next steps for ship-emission reduction in Hong Kong and around the Greater Bay Area to further improve air quality in the region.
