Hong Kong’s restaurants and markets enjoy a massive supply of seafood from all over the world. However, many of us are unaware of the effects this has on the marine environment. WWF’s Sustainable Seafood Initiative, including Shark Fin Initiative and Bluefin Tuna campaign help to inform the public and promote sustainable consumption.

FSC Wood and Paper

Timber is often taken for granted, but it is fundamental to paper, construction, furniture creation, and other important uses that are highly relevant to Hong Kong. Unfortunately, an alarming amount of timber entering use in Hong Kong lacks sufficient certification or is potentially sourced illegally. WWF encourages the three Rs concept of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle  as well as the use of Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) wood, which guarantees that timber is sourced from certified, sustainably managed forest.
