About HKGPC
 

The HKSAR Government pledged to develop and promote green purchasing in the government and private sectors so as to reduce waste generation and stimulate the recycling industry in December 2005. In the Policy Address 2006-07, our Chief Executive also appeals to the trade and industry sectors to protect the environment, in which green procurement methods in the operations are highly recommended. The Government suggests local private sector businesses and members to be guided and assisted in the selection, purchase and use of "green" products and services produced, offered and consumed in environmentally responsible manners without unnecessary sacrifices on quality of life or the natural environment. In his Policy Address 2009-10 and after the task force on economic challenges meeting in June 2009, the Chief Executive also announced that the Government will expand the scope of green purchasing and take the lead in making Hong Kong a green city through legislation and specific green measures.
