Environmental Protection
Font Size

The Club's commitment to environmental protection has grown in scope and scale over the years. From the development of Hong Kong's first Air Pollution Index and the launch of one of the largest voluntary campaigns to recycle used glass bottles into eco-bricks; to the set up of Hong Kong's first museum of climate change at The Chinese University of Hong Kong campus, and the demonstration of the new trend of upcycling waste material into designers’ products, the projects funded by the Club have covered a wide range of emerging environmental issues.

Building a sustainable future for Hong Kong is also a core value of the Club's culture and business operation. The pioneering initiatives adopted at the Jockey Club Kau Sai Chau Public Golf Course have been recognised with many international awards – most notably, it was the first golf facility in China to be named a "Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary".

Before the Environmental Levy Scheme on Plastic Shopping Bags was launched in 2009, the Club in 2001 organised the visionary HKJC Green Child Campaign that promoted green practices including the reduction of plastic bag usage among schoolchildren. In addition, the Club’s Charities Trust supports two public education initiatives – the CUHK Jockey Club Initiative Gaia, a five-year community engagement programme; and the Mission Healthy Greens – Jockey Club Elderly Green Living Programme, proving that one is never too old to develop a green lifestyle.
