The Chinese University of Hong Kong and The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust have joined hands to co-host the Hong Kong chapter of the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN).  SDSN Hong Kong seeks to mobilize expertise, information and resources from different sectors to address the most pressing environmental, social and economic issues in Hong Kong and advance sustainable development.

Since its inception in early 2018, SDSN Hong Kong has led, supported and participated in a wide range of activities that address some of these challenges in sustainable development and support the implementation of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals in Hong Kong and beyond.  The network intends to identify various means of collaboration with local and international experts in sustainable development, including researchers, social entrepreneurs, philanthropists, technological experts, government officials and key opinion leaders, in order to pursue sustainability solutions.

In December 2018, SDSN Youth Hong Kong was launched to raise awareness among young people in Hong Kong of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, to allow them to exchange ideas with experts, and to encourage them to champion the cause of sustainable development by proposing innovative solutions to the many environmental challenges faced by Hong Kong.

Waste is the third largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in Hong Kong. The daily domestic waste generation rate per capita of Hong Kong is 1.36 kg, which is the highest compared to neighbouring cities at a similar level of development: 1.00 kg in Taipei City, 0.95 kg in Seoul City and 0.77 kg in Metro Tokyo (Environment Bureau, Hong Kong Blueprint for Sustainable Use of Resources 2013–2022). Waste – as well as waste reduction – is everyone’s responsibility.

The Waste Reduction Project is the first-ever school-based waste-charging simulation project, which aims to increase the school sector’s awareness of Hong Kong’s waste problem and educate school members on sustainable waste management (waste reduction, separation and recycling). We plan to invite 24 secondary schools to participate in the project, who will examine their waste generation, identify ways of achieving ‘zero waste’, take action to reduce waste and, most importantly, promote the action to the students’ households and the communities. Through the engagement infrastructure created by the project, the students – our future green leaders – will spread the message of ‘waste less, save more’ to households and communities, inspiring more positive action to respond to the impending introduction of a quantity-based municipal solid waste charging system.

Hong Kong Blueprint for Sustainable Use of Resources 2013–2022

In May 2013, the Environment Bureau of the HKSAR Government published Hong Kong Blueprint for Sustainable Use of Resources 2013–2022 (http://www.enb.gov.hk/en/files/WastePlan-E.pdf), which analyses the challenges and opportunities of waste management in Hong Kong, and maps out a comprehensive strategy, targets, policies and action plans up to the year 2022 for tackling the waste crisis.

Zero Waste

According to the Zero Waste International Alliance, ‘Zero Waste is a goal that is ethical, economical, efficient and visionary, to guide people in changing their lifestyles and practices to emulate sustainable natural cycles, where all discarded materials are designed to become resources for others to use. Implementing Zero Waste will eliminate all discharges to land, water or air that are a threat to planetary, human, animal or plant health’ (http://zwia.org/standards/zw-definition/).
