Target-setting for Long-term Decarbonisation: A Practical Challenge for Businesses in Hong Kong
Target-setting is a critical step to drive decarbonisation actions and behavioural change. In the business context, it allows companies to understand their emission sources and embed carbon reduction goals into their business strategies. The rise of the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) has pushed for a more comprehensive target-setting process which includes the consideration of climate science and Scope 3 emissions. Join us at this webinar to hear insights from academics and practitioners on the relevance of climate change to business and their experiences on target-(re)setting.
Accelerating Low-Carbon Innovation Towards Carbon Peak and Neutrality
Climate change is not just a challenge in the future but has already become a dangerous reality today, threatening the wellbeing of future generations and human survival. President Xi Jinping declared China’s determined efforts to achieve peak carbon by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060 at the General Assembly of the United Nations in 2020, and emphasised China’s acceleration towards low-carbon innovations. Mr Xie Zhenhua, China’s climate envoy, will share his insights at a webinar and present China’s roadmap and policies on achieving those goals. In addition, three internationally renowned experts will join Mr Xie in a panel discussion to explore the development of a fair, practical and mutually beneficial global climate management system.
Low-carbon Office Operation Programme (LOOP)
Low-carbon Office Operation Programme was launched by World Wide Fund For Nature. The programme has been established to enable Hong Kong companies and organisations to become part of the solution to climate change. By participating in LOOP, companies or organisations are engaged with a group of like-minded forward-looking leaders to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions generated from office operation via the adoption of managerial and technological best practices, staff behavioural adaptation, and a labelling scheme. LOOP companies or organisations can access a tool-kit that allows the measurement and analysis of the carbon performance of an office, formulation of emissions reduction strategy, and reporting on their improved carbon performance.
