Take a Brake Low Carbon Action, Hong Kong
Our Take a Brake (TAB) Low Carbon Action programme aims to improve air quality in Hong Kong by encouraging a low carbon lifestyle and greener driving techniques.
The programme encourages all sectors of the community to become involved and reduce their environmental footprint. One initiative was to encourage drivers in Hong Kong to leave their cars at home for at least one day each month and develop green driving habits to reduce their vehicles' carbon emissions.
Support for the programme
TAB has been well received by the business community and schools. Over 20 large corporations joined its Corporate Green Driving Award Scheme and 4,000 young people were recruited as TAB ambassadors to help make a difference in Hong Kong.
The programme is also a valuable opportunity to engage with different stakeholders. It is jointly organised and implemented by Friends of the Earth (HK), Green Power and WWF-Hong Kong, and has the full support of the Environment Bureau of the Government of the HKSAR.
