“It is my honour to serve BEC as the new Board Chairman. On behalf of the Board, I would like to express my gratitude to all retired Board Directors for their support and contributions during the past two years and extend a warm welcome to the new Directors joining us. I would also like to thank our outgoing Chairman Mr Richard Lancaster for his stewardship of the Board over the past six years,” BEC Chairman Mr Kevin O’Brien said.
“The main message from the latest IPCC Working Group III report is that it is ‘now or never’ to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees in the midst of climate emergency, and the key to success is to convert ambition into actions. In Hong Kong, the Government announced the Climate Action Plan 2050 last year with a four-pronged strategy to make the city carbon neutral by mid-century. As we celebrate our 30th Anniversary this year, BEC will step up collaboration with our members, the broader business community, the Government and other stakeholders, both locally and internationally, for achieving environmental excellence and corporate sustainability, and supporting Hong Kong’s transition to a net-zero economy,” Mr Kevin O’Brien added.
