Policy targets and timeline

Hong Kong Government has proposed to set a carbon intensity reduction target of 50% – 60% by 2020 as compared with 2005 level. The Chief Executive pledged in his 2007/08 Policy address to reduce the energy intensity of Hong Kong by at least 25% between 2005 and 2030.  (source: http://www.epd.gov.hk/epd/mobile/english/climate_change/ca_intro.html)

Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC) would like to present its support to the Government’s response on the SDC paper and its latest policies regarding green building development. Therefore, HKGBC would like to propose the HK3030 Campaign – a roadmap of achievable targets focusing on the demand side of electricity consumption, in which the absolute electricity consumption of buildings in Hong Kong can be reduced by 30% by 2030, from 2005 level.
