[Webinar] Road to Carbon Neutral

Speaker: Jim Taylor, Senior Director, Planning & Development, CLP Power Hong Kong Limited
Venue: Webinar (Zoom)
Date & Time: 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm, 24 August 2021 (Tue)
CPD: 1

The 2020 Policy Address announced that Hong Kong would strive to achieve carbon neutrality before 2050. The city is now moving towards the 2030 target of reducing carbon intensity by 65% to 70% compared to 2005 based on Hong Kong’s Climate Action Plan 2030+. To reduce carbon emissions, the Government has taken measures in areas like waste management, energy supply, green building, green transport, cleaner production and green finance.

CLP Holdings, the larger of two power utilities in Hong Kong, will raise the bar on its decarbonisation efforts. Against this background, TMA is delighted to have invited Mr. Jim Taylor, Senior Director - Planning & Development, CLP Power Hong Kong Limited, to share with Members how we can reduce carbon emissions in Hong Kong and what finance sectors can do to help achieve the goal.

Agenda:

  • Carbon emissions in Hong Kong - Where they come from, what are the main trends and what needs to change in the future

  • Reducing air pollution - Another key target for Hong Kong.  How reducing carbon emissions can also reduce air pollution

  • CLP’s Climate Vision and our progress so far, including past and present projects to reduce emissions in Hong Kong

  • Looking ahead – the need for more zero carbon electricity and new zero carbon fuels (including hydrogen)

  • Decarbonising the economy as a whole, including transport and other sectors

  • How the finance sector can help and the next steps Hong Kong should take
