VI. Environmental Protection and
Climate Change and Energy
132. At the end of last year, an inter-departmental committee
chaired by the Chief Secretary for Administration submitted a
report proposing to adopt measures of mitigation, adaptation and
resilience to combat climate change, with a view to reducing the
carbon intensity in Hong Kong from the 2005 level by 65% to 70%
by 2030. I have accepted these recommendations.
133. In respect of adaptation and resilience, the Working
Group on Infrastructure under Climate Change has been
established to co-ordinate efforts among works departments to
combat climate change, including updating infrastructure design
standards and comprehensively reviewing the resilience of the
existing infrastructure. We will continue to enhance analytical
work related to climate change.
