Detailed Information:
The Hong Kong Sustainable Development Forum (HKSDF) was founded in September 1998, it is, and remains to this day, a private sector initiative.

The Forum was established in response to the ongoing absence of consensus building, consultation and engagement of all stakeholders in the current discussion on sustainable development.

In fact, the Forum was very first NGO in Hong Kong to focus only on Sustainable Development in Hong Kong, HKSDF lead the field and was so before it was a popular concept in Hong Kong.

The HKSDF actively encourages and welcomes the participation of all the business and consumer action groups and the government to build a better, more sustainable future.

It is styled on similar government and non government appointed forums like the United States Presidentís Council on Sustainable Development, the British Government Panel on Sustainable Development and the Canadian Roundtable.

The aims are wide ranging, including raising awareness, foster support and participate in consensus building to provide informed comment and recommendations on government, business and private sector policies, strategies, institution building and laws on sustainability in Hong Kong and internationally.

Over the years HKSDF has focused, and in some cases, driven SD policy in Hong Kong. If this work is to continue, your support is needed.
