Green Event Pledge

Green Event Pledge

To encourage more organisations to join the waste reduction force, the Environmental Protection Department (EPD) has invited organisations from different sectors to participate in our “Green Event Pledge”*. The participating organisations shall commit to making reference to the EPD’s “A Waste Reduction Guidebook for Large Scale Event Organisers” (Guidebook) when organising, co-organising, sponsoring or providing services to events, so as to enhance the environmental performance of the events, and to encourage other relevant organsiations to follow suit.  In essence, the organisations shall pledge to make their best endeavours to take the following actions as far as practicable:

  • Plan ahead to adopt measures to reduce waste generated from the events, e.g. use recycled materials for stage setup, reuse event resources, channel the materials into proper recycling or donation outlets, etc.
  • Step up efforts to drive behavioral change in event participants to avoid or reduce consumption of one-off disposable items, e.g. plastic cups, cutlery, utensils, straws, and in particular, bottled water, by encouraging and facilitating event participants to bring their own water bottles where applicable (such as setting up water refilling stations).
  • Reduce food waste by ordering or preparing food in an appropriate quantity to prevent unnecessary wastage, and when appropriate, encourage participants to take away excess food after the event.
  • Reduce paper consumption and promote wider use of electronic means of communication.

* For details of the Green Event Pledge, please refer to the electronic leaflet.

Green Event Pledge Kick-off Ceremony

As of 6 November 2019, more than 230 organisations have made the Green Event Pledge (see Green Event Pledge Participating Organisations for details). The EPD held a kick-off ceremony on 27 September 2018 to commend and demonstrate their determination to reduce waste.

As an officiating guest of the ceremony, the Secretary for the Environment, Mr Wong Kam-sing, delivered a speech and took the opportunity to call on more event organisers and stakeholders from different sectors to commit to making reference to the Guidebook to integrate the green concepts into events of different nature, so as to achieve “Use Less, Waste Less”. Among the some 40 organisations which have attended the ceremony, representatives from the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, Hong Kong Trade Development Council, Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (Management) Limited, AsiaWorld-Expo Management Limited and Wofoo Social Enterprises shared their experience in organising green mega events and their plans.
