Air Quality Objectives Review

Public Consultation Forum

Opportunities for the General Public to Express their Views and Concerns

10 OCTOBER 2009 (Saturday)



To enhance the protection of public health and further improve air quality, the HKSAR Government has launched a public consultation on Air Quality Objectives (AQOs) review until the end of November 2009. The proposed new AQOs are set by taking into account the World Health Organization’s Air Quality Guidelines and the practices of other advanced countries/economies.

To help achieve the proposed new AQOs, 19 emission control measures have been recommended in the following four categories:

-Emission Capping and Control

-Transport Management

-Infrastructure Development and Planning

-Energy Efficiency Measures

Relevant consultation document can be downloaded from the Environmental Protection Department’s website :

The proposed measures will have different degrees of impact on the public such as improvement to health, better quality of living, a change of life style, or possible increase in expenses, etc. Therefore, the views of the public are of paramount importance to help Hong Kong set a new benchmark for clean air.
