INTRODUCTION

Further to the public engagement exercise on the long-term Decarbonisation for Hong Kong undertaken by the Council for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement with nearly 200 signatories, Hong Kong, like other developed countries and world cities, should share its climate responsibility, especially to address extreme weather conditions arisen in recent years and set Decarbonisation target.

Whether Hong Kong will consider a reduction target of 60% or 80% or more, Decarbonisation will be a major challenge and opportunity to drive changes in our city and our lifestyle.  The primary objectives of this forum are to serve as a platform to communicate and review Decarbonisation strategies; share local and international practices and explore relevant digitalization & innovation for Decarbonisation.  At the same time, we would like to know how technologies and development can become critical enablers for the transformation and present both opportunities and challenges to engineers.

The forum comprises the keynote session and four other sessions: i) Green construction; ii) Decarbonising generation through digitalization; iii) Hydrogen economy and iv) Experience sharing and best practices for Decarbonisation.
