Petition to curb vehicle growth

Roadside air pollution has remained unsafe over the last 20 years and stayed as high as two times the WHO’s standard.

In the past decades, the number of registered vehicles has increased drastically from 530,000 to 820,000. This seriously worsens traffic congestion thus roadside pollution. Furthermore, the prolonged journey time also increases the commuters’ exposure to roadside air pollution.

We need your immediate support to urge government to implement policies to curb vehicle numbers.

Petition for Real Low Emission Zones & Review Regularly

Effectiveness of existing Low Emission Zones (LEZ) is questionable.

The existing LEZ only included a few street blocks in Causeway Bay, Central and Mongkok. We dubbed as “low emission streets”. LEZ solely regulates buses, but franchised buses only account for 40% of total traffic accounts in busy areas, whilst the remaining 60% consists of other vehicles. That means it cannot achieve real emissions reduction.

In order to accommodate the LEZ , government shifts bus routes and uses older bus models in area out of the LEZ. Neglecting equally polluted areas such as Tsim Sha Tsui.

We petition to﹕

  • Expand the current geographical scope;
  • Prohibit other high emission vehicles from entering low emission zones;
  • Enhance the effectiveness of low emission zones by combining pedestrian zones, for example, combining Des Voeux Road Central pedestrian zone with tram zones.

Petition for Low Emission Zone instead of Low Emission Street

Existing Low Emission Zone area not only is too small geographically, it also only regulate buses.

Petition to Tighten Air Quality Objectives (AQO) to WHO standard now

Hong Kong’s current Air Quality Objectives are set far below the World Health Organisation Air Quality Guildelines

Failure to comply to such standard raises citizens’ mortality rate by 2.5-15%. Expensive medical bills and lost of productivity causes Hong Kong $39 billion per year. To protect public health and the environment, we petition to:

we petition to

  • Specify “to protect public health as the first priority” as one of the air quality objectives in Section 7A of the Air Pollution Control Ordinance;
  • Tighten the AQO to the WHO standard, especially the AQO of sulphur dioxide for 24 hours average, which is currently 5 times higher than the WHO AQGs;
  • Set up a regular advisory committee, with participants from civil society, academic and industry fields, to review AQO and its related policy

Petition to install onshore power supply at Kai Tak Cruise Terminal

CAN is very disappointed that the authorities has decided to shelve the installation of onshore power supply for Kai Tak Cruise Terminal. Ocean going ships are Hong Kong’s biggest pollution source. On shore power system avoids the burning of fuels on ships berthing cruises. Its social benefits is estimated to bring 5.23 hundred millions per year and avoid 42 premature deaths.

To protect public health, we urge the government to:

  • keep its promise on A Clean Air Plan for Hong Kong and set up on shore power system at Kai Tak Cruise Terminal immediately
