Cool Biz Fashion Show aims to encourage 'dress down' policy

Jun '07
On 3 June, business personages and senior government officials paraded along the catwalk in causal business attires. To keep up the momentum of the Action Blue Sky launched last year, the "Cool Biz Fashion Show" aims to further encourage more corporations and institutions to adopt a "dress down" policy in summer, saving energy in the age of global warming.

The "Cool Biz Fashion Show" was organised by the Environmental Protection Department, together with the Environmental Campaign Committee, to tie in with the global theme of the World Environment Day 2007 on climate change and to address local concerns over air pollution.

The launching ceremony was officiated by the Chief Executive, Mr Donald Tsang; the Secretary for the Environment, Transport and Works, Dr Sarah Liao; the Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the HKSAR, Mr Lu Xinhua; the Secretary for Health, Wealth and Food, Dr York Chow; the Permanent Secretary for the Civil Service, Mr Andrew Wong; and the Chairman of the Environmental Campaign Committee, Mr Joseph Lee Chung-tak. More than 30 representatives of the Consul-Generals and District Councils also attended the ceremony to show their support.

Taking the stage in their cool business outfits are Dr Liao; Dr Chow; Mr Wong; Mr Lee; Chairperson of the HK General Chamber of Commerce, Dr Lily Chiang; Chief Executive Officer of the Business Environment Council, Dr Andrew Thomson; Mr Cliff Sun, Deputy Chairman of the Federation of Hong Kong Industries; Mr Julian Ludbrook, Consul-General of New Zealand in Hong Kong; Ms Ulpu Koskinen, Consul of Finland in Hong Kong and Mr Lal Duhthlana Ralte, Consul-General of India in Hong Kong.
