Building a Greener City

95.      We are committed to promoting greening and have been maximising greening opportunities in public works projects. In the coming year, the Greening Master Plan projects undertaken by the Civil Engineering and Development Department will cover the whole of Hong Kong Island and urban Kowloon. In addition, we will provide landscaping features on 500 old slopes and carry out greening work on the rooftops of 40 Government buildings through additional funding for minor works. We will also subsidise schools and other non-profit-making organisations through the Environment and Conservation Fund to carry out greening work. Since our capital injection into the Fund last year, it has provided funding of $29 million to support greening works for about 100 buildings. We will continue to streamline the vetting process and encourage district and eligible organisations to make good use of the Fund to improve the environment.
