As one of the most developed metropolitan areas, Hong Kong is a latecomer in the climate action arena in the region. By committing to reach carbon neutrality by 2050 last year, Hong Kong is catching up with other peer cities such as Tokyo and Seoul. In her annual policy address on October 6th 2021, Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam announced some specific policy measures both in climate adaptation and mitigation. Can Hong Kong speed up its climate actions in the near future, like reducing the coal consumption faster and increasing more electric vehicles sooner? Mr. Kevin Li, a policy expert from a Hong Kong environmental NGO, argues that the government is capable of doing more and environmental groups and general public should play a role in the city’s decarbonization pathway. In this episode, Zhao Ang and Kevin also discuss about renewable power potential, building energy efficiency and electric vehicles penetration.
