UN 75th Dialogue — Hong Kong Story: Climate & Environment Sustainability at a Financial Center, HK



Our current generation is getting close to the tipping point of climate and environmental crisis, and it’s accelerating at an unprecedented speed. However, it is by no means impossible to fight through this challenge, just as how the Secretary General of United Nations have ambitiously stated in his opening remarks at 2019 Climate Action Summit: “The climate emergency is a race we are losing, but it is a race we can win.” The devastating consequences of climate change is inevitably endured by everyone on our planet. Facing such challenge, Hong Kong is utilizing its advantages of being an international financial center to foster the sustainable development of climate and environment.

我們這一代人正面對氣候與環境危機的臨界點,而且正在以前所未有的速度加速接近。然而,戰勝這一挑戰絕非不可能,正如聯合國秘書長在2019年氣候行動峰會開幕詞中雄心勃勃地指出:“氣候緊急狀況是我們正在輸掉的一場競賽,但這是一場我們可以贏得的競賽“ 氣候變化的毀滅性後果不可避免地要由地球上的每一個人來承受。面對這樣的挑戰,香港正在利用其作為國際金融中心的優勢來促進氣候與環境的可持續發展。
