This Article discusses the existing environmental legal regime of Hong Kong. It attempts to provide the foreign investor with a brief background to Hong Kong's political, legal, and economic structure. It also examines in some detail the four major areas of pollution control legislation in Hong Kong: air, water, noise, and waste disposal. It gives a general overview of both environmental legislation currently in force, and that which is expected to be enacted in the future. The author suggests that the increasing prominence of environmental issues in the commercial and legal fields in Hong Kong will allow for a wide range of foreign investment.
