Yesterday we recorded a radio show that explored the right balance, in growing a green economy, between incentives and "friendly" legislation and too much government interference. If we are going to successfully migrate away from a fossil-fuel economy, governments will need to set the right playing field without interfering with the game.
Here we see the same debate going on in Hong Kong. Clearly they have some catching up to do in terms of base sustainability practices to other Asian countries. Good, balanced regulation can help move that process along.
Next year is another pivotal 12 months for all nations on Earth. We hope they move forward, not backwards, and spring board off the Paris talks into a worldwide, concerted effort to build a clean, green, efficient, smart global marketplace.
