Government welcomes SDC's report on long-term decarbonisation strategy
************************************************************
     The Environment Bureau has thanked the Council for Sustainable Development (SDC) for submitting today (November 13) the report and recommendations the SDC drew up based on the findings of a public engagement that it conducted on Hong Kong's long-term decarbonisation strategy.

     "I wish to express my sincere gratitude to the Chairman of the SDC, Professor Arthur Li; its Strategy Sub-committee Chairman, Professor Jonathan Wong; and all Sub-committee and Support Group members for their hard work," the Secretary for the Environment, Mr Wong Kam-sing, said.

     "The report is very informative and comprehensive. The Government will consider the recommendations carefully, and will give a more detailed response later," Mr Wong added.

     The SDC has set out a long-term vision and six overarching objectives to guide the development of a long-term decarbonisation strategy for Hong Kong. A total of 55 recommendations were made in eight key areas. For details, please refer to the SDC report published on the public engagement website at www.susdev.org.hk.
