Many call the 2015 UN Climate Change Conference (COP21) a huge step forward as nations negotiated an agreement to tackle climate change with commitments to cut greenhouse gas emissions. In Hong Kong, the Government published the Hong Kong Climate Change Report 2015 in November which was then presented in COP21. While the Government has taken initial steps, there remains to be major challenges ahead to make the low carbon transition.
