President’s Message

I am really honored to be elected the President of the Hong Kong Institute of Qualified Environmental Professionals (HKIQEP). I am thrilled to inherit the legacy from my predecessor, our Immediate Past President, Dr. Jeanne Ng to continue taking environmental professionals to the next level.

I will continue to strive for more opportunities for our young and future generations who have passion for protecting the environment.  We will work with our academic partners to develop suitable curriculum to meet the needs of the communities as well as accrediting suitable programs to lure more talents into this growing demand for environmental professionals.   We will continue the Graduate Environmental Mentoring Scheme (GEMS) for graduates to advance their career opportunities as well as to gain professional qualification. Our continued collaboration with existing environmental professional institutions and environmental experts hailing from across the business, government and academic sectors, will be instrumental to successfully shaping this platform.

I look forward to working with our members together with our Board Members/Honorary Advisors, and Institution Partners to provide qualified environmental professionals to advance environmental protection and to align our future generation to realize Government’s Climate Action Plan by 2050. We will explore opportunities with other organizations in the Greater Bay Area on our aspiration to develop qualified environmental professionals, providing both quality jobs and a healthy and sustainable environment for our future generations.
