I am looking forward to the ECC's promotion of environmental protection and mobilisation of the public to practise low-carbon living in different sectors of the community under the leadership of Mr Wong.

     "I would like to thank in particular the outgoing Chairman, Professor Joseph Sung Jao-yiu, for his full dedication to leading the ECC to enhance the environmental awareness of the public in the past two years, especially in promoting eco-anti-pandemic measures as well as taking care of one's health and reducing waste at source at the same time. In addition, I would also like to thank the outgoing members, namely Ms Nancy Lam Chung-yan, Dr Calvin Lee Kwan and Dr Albert Wong for their valuable advice and contributions to the ECC during their appointment period."
