Dr CHENG Kam-chung, Eric, BBS, MH, OStJ, JP
Chairman of the Environment and Conservation Fund Committee

Welcome to the Environment and Conservation Fund (ECF) website!

The ECF was established under the Environment and Conservation Fund Ordinance (Cap. 450) in 1994. Except for the official members, other members (including the Chairman) of the ECF Committee are appointed by the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to advise the Government on the manner and extent for the use of the ECF, vet funding applications for various environmental activities and projects, and oversee project implementation.

As a long-term commitment to environmental protection and nature conservation, the Government provides funding support to local non-profit making organisations through the ECF for implementing green projects and activities. Over the years, more than 6 000 green projects and activities have been funded with a total amount of about HK$4 billion.

The ECF Committee hopes to join hands with all sectors of the community to promote environmental protection and nature conservation in Hong Kong, so as to build a healthy and pleasant city for ourselves and our future generations and turn Hong Kong people’s aspiration for a better living environment into reality.
