What is HKGOC?

The Hong Kong Green Organisation Certification (HKGOC) is led by the Environmental Campaign Committee (ECC) alongside the Environmental Protection Department and in conjunction with nine organisations, in alphabetical order, the Advisory Council on the Environment, the Business Environment Council, the Chinese General Chamber of Commerce, the Chinese Manufacturers' Association of Hong Kong, the Federation of Hong Kong Industries, the Hong Kong Chinese Importers' & Exporters' Association, the Hong Kong Council of Social Service, the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce and the Hong Kong Productivity Council. The HKGOC aims to benchmark organisations in green management, to encourage participating organisations to adopt environmental practices in different aspects and to recognise their efforts in and commitments to the environment.

Starting from 2020, HKGOC consists of four Certificates, namely “Wastewi$e Certificate”, “Energywi$e Certificate”, “IAQwi$e Certificate” and “Carbon Reduction Certificate”. Participating companies can further obtain the title of “Hong Kong Green Organisation” if they demonstrate achievements in multiple environmental aspects.
