The Carbon Neutrality Approach

According to the Global Risks Landscape of 2021, environmental risks have the highest likelihood and impact, thus stakeholders should begin incorporating ESG into their operations and strive for carbon neutrality solutions to enable Hong Kong achieve net-zero by 2050.

In this lecture, Clara will share the benefits of ESG integration and the introduction of a carbon neutrality approach including renewable energy systems, energy storage, energy efficiency, and energy management, as well as the accompanying business models that stakeholders could embrace along with Hong Kong's Feed-in Tariff Scheme. Any type of business is seen to be eligible for a renewable energy system that allows them to enhance income and savings, comply with ESG, and pursue carbon neutrality.
