Green Event Pledge

The Environmental Protection Department (EPD) launched the Green Event Guidebook in December 2017 which provides clear guidelines and practical examples for event organizers to achieve waste reduction at source and clean recycling at their events. In September 2018, over 40 organizations from various sectors echoed EPD and pledged their support for green events. They committed to following this Guidebook when organizing and sponsoring future events, aiming to enhance their environmental performance and work collaboratively to promote waste reduction.

 

PolyU further devotes to adopting green event measures by taking the Green Event Pledge in Sep 2018

The University hosts numerous events and activities on campus each year and has always been supporting green event measures. With this pledge, the University will deepen green practices in organizing as well as promoting events and activities, and to further enhance the environmental awareness and building of a waste-less culture in the campus community.
