“The Perfect Storm” - Impact of Hong Kong legislation, “New” Regulatory Requirements, Sustainable investing, and Increased waste disposal enforcement, affecting the reporting of Chemical / Hazardous waste. “Will you be subject to excessive penalties up to imprisonment? Are you in a position to be proactive on ESG Reporting?”
With the upcoming Hong Kong Exchange revised Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) reporting standards taking effect December 31, 2016, the recent surge in enforcement of the current Waste Disposal Ordinance (WDO), and the increase in the “sustainability investment funds” for investors, The changes together represent significant risks not only related to the social responsibility impact but newly enforced fines and penalties to include imprisonment for improper disposal of Used Lead Acid Batteries (ULAB). The Hong Kong government is very serious about the environmental impact of disposal of these materials. The question is “How serious is this legislation”. Very few alternatives exist to properly comply with the WDO.
