HK2050 is Now Green Building Reports Launch 

Establishing a dedicated Cross-Agency Body and improving building rating systems is key to driving effective policy change in the building sector towards net zero carbon emissions by 2050, according to two reports released on December 8, 2020. 

The recommendations are included in two reports under the green building project collaboration between HK2050 is Now, led by Civic Exchange, and the Greater Bay Area Green Finance Alliance (GBA-GFA) led by Hong Kong Green Finance Association (HKGFA). 

Our sincere gratitude to all who supported the publications and guests who attended the launch webinar. Full list of acknowledge please visit our website. A replay of the media launch will be available soon.

據12 月 8 日 發佈的兩份報告建議成立一個跨機構專責組織和改善建築評級系統,以推動建築業的政策變化及在 2050 年前實現淨零碳排放。

兩份報告建議是由思匯政策研究所籌組的 HK2050 is Now 及香港綠色金融協會所發起的粵港澳大灣區綠色金融聯盟(GBA-GFA)聯合發佈。

Watch: CY Lam's Response to SDC's Public Engagements Result

In November 2020, the Council for Sustainable Development (SDC) submitted to the Government its report on Hong Kong's long-term decarbonisation strategy. To our relief, the latest policy address adopted some of the Council's recommendations, especially the long-term reduction goal of achieving net zero emissions by 2050. 

However, there is still work to do, and CY recommends the Government to demonstrate its commitment and leadership in three areas: 
  1. Mainstream decarbonisation policies and all departments must operate in a manner that does not compromise the progress to achieve net zero emission by 2050. 
  2. A solid leadership structure must be established to implement the policies, preferably under the direct leadership of the Chief Executive.
  3. The future of change is highly dependent on science and technology and the executive agency must be backed by evidence-based studies.
(Adopted from CY Lam's original Facebook Post)



  1. 政策必須主流化,所有部門的運作都不能違反2050年零碳排放目標
  2. 必須設立堅實的架構執行政策,最好由行政長官直接領導
  3. 未來轉變高度倚靠科技,執行機構必須有結實科學力量
