According to WWF-Hong Kong’s “Hong Kong Ecological Footprint Report 2010”, Hong Kong people are living beyond the Earth’s limits. 2.2 Earths are needed if everyone lived the lifestyle of Hong Kong people. Hong Kong’s footprint is larger than the global average of 1.5 Earths. Hong Kong’s carbon Footprint is significant, making up 60 percent of the total Ecological Footprint. Most of them are embodied in imports, meaning that CO2 is emitted elsewhere to supply imports to Hong Kong. WWF calls for immediate actions from Hong Kong businesses and individuals. It also takes a leading role in promoting, advising and implementing initiatives to reduce Hong Kong’s ecological footprint. We also set an example not just at home, but also for others in the region to follow. Our efforts focus on work to address climate change, and the sustainable use of natural resources such as seafood and timber.
