Targets urged for 2030

Green groups called on Secretary for the Environment Wong Kam- sing to outline an emissions plan for 2030 and beyond.

Wong, pictured, who is in Paris, should bring ideas from other regions back home, they said.

Currently, Hong Kong’s plan is to reduce emissions by 19 to 33 percent as compared to 2005 levels by 2020.

It is odd that China has outlined its plan well beyond 2020, said Gavin Edwards of the World Wildlife Fund.

The plan may include “a scheme to encourage renewable energy development,” he added.

Greenpeace senior campaigner Frances Yeung Hoi-shan said it is time to start formulating a 2030 target since “it takes time to change economic and energy models, including renewable energy.”
