VI. Environmental Protection and Nature Conservation

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.
