As with other places around the world, Hong Kong faces multiple climate-related threats, which include among other things, rising temperatures and extreme weather conditions. As part of the international effort to address climate change, Hong Kong has embarked on the process of formulating its own long-term decarbonisation strategy up to 2050 by next year following the Mainland's accession to the 2016 Paris Agreement.

The Council for Sustainable Development is currently gathering views as part of a public engagement exercise to help draw up a decarbonisation strategy for Hong Kong and has identified three key areas for public discussion: 

1.   Transition Towards a Low-Carbon Society 
2.   Reducing Energy Use and Further Decarbonising Electricity Generation 
3.   Low Carbon Transport in a Smart City
