Public engagement on sustainable consumption of biological resources

Biological resources provide for our daily needs, such as clothing, food, shelter, fuel and medicine, etc... However, due to the current over-consumption pattern, many of the biological resources that we come across are now under the risk of depletion and exhaustion. If the rate of harvesting and consumption is greater than the reproduction rate, more and more species, habitats and resources will disappear more quickly than we can imagine!

The Council for Sustainable Development (the Council) is carrying out a public engagement on sustainable consumption of biological resources and invites public views on three major aspects:

  • How to facilitate smart choices for consumers?
  • How to promote best practices among businesses and the public sector?
  • What kinds of education and publicity activities should be pursued?

You are sincerely invited to send us your views on or before 15 November 2016 as well as join our engagement events. The public engagement document and information on engagement events are available at the Council's dedicated website at www.susdev.org.hk.
