Following COP26 in November 2021, there is a growing realisation that the world must take more ambitious and immediate actions towards decarbonisation and adaptation to avoid irreversible damages brought by climate change. Hong Kong has a strong role to play, and is taking action through its Climate Action Plan 2050.
‘Post COP26 – Combatting Climate Change in Hong Kong and Beyond’ is a paper published by ARUP, in collaboration with Civic Exchange, Institution of Civil Engineers Hong Kong Association, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and World Green Building Council. Aside from an evaluation of global and regional progress on climate change policy, the document sets out a series of strategies and measures to reduce carbon emissions, with a focus on the built environment, that make Hong Kong a leading example in combatting climate change.
