No fluffy board room chat, we are all business, tackling a Nett Zero goal whether you are in the construction, garment, or retail, it does not matter, it is the same problem, and the same tough road ahead.

In the 2020 Policy Address, the Hong Kong Government set out a key objective, striving for carbon neutrality by 2050, and this will impact every person, and every business operating in Hong Kong.

Presumably the target will be based on the absolute GHG emissions.

The major sources for GHG emissions include energy generation (68%) with buildings consuming 90% of energy generated, transport (17%) and remainder (15%) includes waste, industry, farming, land use, etc. Therefore the success of the policy must target the major sources first, but it is inevitable, and expect, major impacts on the whole community.

Imagine you are rushed into hospital, you need an operation, do you want to risk your life with greenhorn surgeon or a wiser, experienced consultant, you decide.

Presently, Hong Kong emits approx. 40,600 kiloTonnes/CO2e per year (ENB 2018 figures published in 2020), plus the natural creep, by 2050 the GHG emission would be nearer 45,000 kiloTonnes/CO2e per year, so planning and specialist knowledge is required.

What does Carbon Neutrality mean?

To reach carbon neutrality target means deducting GHG emitted say 40,600 kilotonnes/CO2e/year from the atmosphere, and with actual expertise to back this up, we devise solutions.

What does Nett Zero mean?

Essentially, it means the same as carbon neutrality, offset emission, to balance the GHG budget to zero over a specified timeframe. Net zero has the same meaning as Nett Zero.
