Transforming Hong Kong ~ Low Carbon Economy and Green Jobs, 22 June 2012, Hong Kong

WWF-Hong Kong and City University of Hong Kong are jointly organizing a CEO Leadership Forum on 22 June 2012. The forum aims to initiate a high-level conversation on low-carbon business opportunities and green jobs in Hong Kong.

Recently, WWF conducted a survey of more than 150 companies in Hong Kong about the green policies that exist in their offices and the proportion of “green positions” in their companies. The forum hopes to promote understanding about how the green movement has affected working practices among businesses, corporations and green industries, and how this translates into working practices. Reference will be made to international experiences in promoting the low-carbon economy in order to identify any policy gaps and explore whether there is a need for new governmental policies.

Green business opportunities should be one of the key drivers for Hong Kong’s future economic growth, creating additional employment and facilitating the transfer of technology. At the forum, WWF-Hong Kong will be announcing the results of the study Transforming Hong Kong: The Low-carbon Economy and Green Jobs to the media.
