Mr M J Stokoe Deputy Director EPD, HKSAR Government
Mr STOKOE began his career with Unilever Ltd. as a graduate chemical engineer working on solutions to environmental problems at manufacturing plants around Europe. After several career moves, which provided experience on industrial effluent control, sewage treatment, chemical waste management and the development of waste disposal facilities, Mr. Stokoe moved to Hong Kong in 1981 as one of the first recruits in the then Environmental Protection Agency where he headed a small team responsible for developing legislation and treatment facilities for chemical waste. Over twelve years later the plans prepared initially by that small team have come to fruition with the completion in 1993 of the Chemical Waste Treatment Centre and the introduction of comprehensive regulations on chemical waste. In the meantime Mr. Stokoe’s responsibilities grew to encompass all aspects of waste and water management within the department, including the planning, tendering and operation of waste management facilities. In April 1996, he was appointed as Deputy Director, and is responsible for the day-to-day management of the six technical divisions of the Environmental Protection Department.
