About the “Hong Kong – Guangdong Cleaner Production Partners Recognition Scheme”
The Environment Bureau of Hong Kong, in collaboration with the Economic & Information Commission of Guangdong Province, launched the Cleaner Production Partnership Programme in April 2008 to encourage and facilitate Hong Kong-owned factories in Hong Kong and Guangdong to adopt cleaner production technologies and practices. To further galvanise the efforts in promoting cleaner production, the Hong Kong and Guangdong governments jointly launched the “Hong Kong – Guangdong Cleaner Production Partners Recognition Scheme” in 2009, awarding commendations of “Hong Kong – Guangdong Cleaner Production Partners (Manufacturing)” to enterprises which demonstrate active participation in cleaner production with outstanding performance.
