Government officially unveiled its proposal to revise the long outdated Air Quality Objectives, kicking off a 4-month long public consultation period today. The consultation document from the EPD website can be downloaded by clicking here.
CAN will post the Government’s proposal document on its website asap. Then, in coming weeks, CAN will analyze and respond to the Government’s proposed new AQOs. Watch this space!
The kick-off of the public consultation period is critical because it affords the public a window of time, during which to voice its views about Hong Kong’s air quality and urge the government to take bold steps to clean up HK’s air.
We urge you, who care about “our air, our health” to speak out during this critical period, in the run-up to the finalization of the new AQOs. Sign CAN’s petition NOW if you’d like to see cleaner air (and stricter AQOs) in HK.
If there was ever a time to get educated about and involved in air pollution, it is NOW. Let’s not forget: Air pollution is HK’s single greatest public health problem.
