Founded in 1956, Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) aims to be a leading research‐led liberal arts University in Asia for the world delivering academic excellence in caring, creative, and global culture. HKBU has a broad range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes up to the doctoral level. Throughout the years, HKBU is dedicated to nurturing the future generations of civically engaged community members, and shouldering the responsibility to foster them with humanity and care for the natural world. As one of Asia’s finest institutions of higher education, the university prides itself on the attraction for talents from all around the world, as well as a vibrant and active alumni network.

With its fundamental strengths in the arts and humanities, HKBU offers an education and research environment that fosters technological progress with a focus on the human dimensions. At the same time, the University is using technology to push the envelope of human imagination in the arts and cultural sphere. Coupled with our unceasing efforts to achieve breakthroughs in science and Chinese medicine, HKBU strives to contribute to the building of a better world and a more compassionate society.

Our vision is to collaborate with the community in creating global and local contribution to sustainability, as well as in developing a green campus through design and operation of new development and existing buildings respectively. We aim to build a resilient and resource efficient institution, shape an environmentally friendly community, and accelerate sustainability and collaboration.

In line with the HKSAR Government’s policy to achieve carbon neutrality before 2050, HKBU continues to share our vision to support sustainable development and recognises the urgent need to address climate change and its impact on the global community. As part of the community, we commit to taking action to reduce our carbon footprint and achieve carbon neutrality.

Our Target
HKBU commits to achieving carbon neutrality for Scopes 1 & 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2044. As a roadmap to achieve this target, we aim to reduce the concerned GHG emissions by 50% by 2035/36, compared to 2012/13 level.

To ensure that we are making strides towards carbon neutrality, the University continues to conduct an annual assessment and measurement of its GHG emissions to gauge its environmental impact and identify areas for improvement (if any).

Our Strategy
To this end and taking reference from the Government’s Hong Kong’s Climate Action Plan 2050, the University has developed four strategies as the core of its plan to achieve carbon neutrality:

  • Energy Saving & Green Buildings
  • Green Transport
  • Waste Reduction
  • HKBU Community Engagement
