Energy Saving Championship Scheme
As the community plays an indispensable role when it comes to energy conservation, we would like to appeal for supports from shopping malls, office buildings, residential buildings/ housing estates, primary and secondary schools, and tertiary education institutions by participating in the "Energy Saving Championship Scheme" (the Scheme) and setting targets to reduce your energy consumption comparable to or even exceeding Government targets, and to promote green building design and management as well.

The Scheme is to recognise leading organisations in the adoption of energy efficient technologies and equipment, application of operational optimisation of energy consuming systems (i.e. retro-commissioning), development of best practices in energy management and promotion of energy saving among tenants and occupants. Champions of each category will be invited as role models to share experience on application of energy efficient technologies and practices through visits or seminars for the trades.

We look forward to the concerted efforts of the Government and the community in promoting a healthy, liveable and sustainable environment in Hong Kong.

Energy Saving Charter 2016
Promoting energy saving is a linchpin of our efforts in combating climate change. In Hong Kong, buildings account for about 90% of our electricity consumption, representing over 60% of greenhouse gas emissions. As the community plays an indispensable role when it comes to energy conservation, we will be launching an Energy Saving Charter in June 2016 to foster close partnership among the Government, business sector and non-governmental organisations for a community-wide sector specific campaign to save energy.

Since 2012, we have stepped up efforts in energy conservation by expanding the Charter scheme to other sectors. During June to September 2015, more than 3,000 premises of participating organisations, including over 150 shopping malls, 260 office buildings, 620 shops, 1,200 offices, 420 residential buildings / housing estates and 360 premises of Non-governmental Organisations (NGOs) signed up to the Charter.

This year, while appealing for the continuous support from shopping malls, office buildings, shops, offices, residential buildings / housing estates and premises of NGOs for making the same pledge, we would like to step up efforts in energy conservation by expanding the scope of the Charter and extending invitation to primary and secondary schools, and tertiary institutions for joining the Charter.

We would appreciate your support in the following respects for Energy Saving Charter 2016 with the scope:-
a) to maintain an average indoor temperature between 24-26°C during the summer months from June to September in 2016;
b) to switch off electrical appliances when not in use from June 2016 to May 2017; and
c) to procure energy efficient appliances from June 2016 to May 2017.

BEC’s Low Carbon Hong Kong Report Launch Event - Supporting Business to Set
The Paris Agreement is a game-changer. 197 countries across the world committed to the overarching objective to keep global temperature rise below 2°C, with carbon neutrality in the second half of the century. However, for the Agreement to be effective, businesses need to set targets and reduce their emissions to meet the overarching objective.

As part of BEC Climate Change Business Forum Advisory Group’s Low Carbon Hong Kong project, this report aims to convey to our members and the wider business community why it is important for them to set carbon reduction targets in line with this 2°C maximum. It explains the extent of the change needed across a number of key Hong Kong sectors to achieve this goal, and the methodologies available for setting these targets. It aims to support Hong Kong businesses keep up with the transition that is now underway, and play their part in achieving this critical goal.

In this event, you will learn more about:
Why should businesses set 2°C carbon reduction targets?
How far and how fast do we need to reduce our emissions for a 2°C maximum?
What are the methodologies available for setting long-term targets?
How can you initiate this process within your company?

Renewable Energy–How can it thrive in Hong Kong?
With the overarching imperative of the Paris Agreement to reach net zero carbon emissions by the middle of the century, transitioning to an ultra-low carbon electricity market is vital. Renewable energy (RE) development, including solar power, has a significant role to play in achieving this transition.  The Hong Kong Government launched its new Climate Action Plan 2030+ on 20 January, which included a target to reduce the carbon intensity of the economy by 65-70% by 2030 (stated to be equivalent to a 26-36% absolute reduction) and said that it was ready to optimise the introduction of RE in a more systematic manner with the Government taking the lead.  BEC, WWF and Hong Kong Baptist University's Asian Energy Studies Centre bring together government, business and NGOs to facilitate a dialogue, on policy measures and actions that can be introduced in the city to facilitate an energy transition, with a focus on optimisation of renewable energy.
