About the event:
The zero carbon building approach has been adopted in many countries as a government strategy
for addressing climate change. Technology and innovation are crucial to the delivery of zero
carbon buildings, and addressing the challenges requires the socio-technical systems approach to
be embedded in all stages of buildings’ life cycle including planning, design, procurement,
construction and facility management. This event is organised under the Hong Kong Zero Carbon
Partnership funded by the Construction Industry Council (CIC). The Partnership aims to help
position Hong Kong as a world-class knowledge-based, innovation-driven and multi-stakeholderengaged
hub for zero carbon building in urban environments. The Partnership has attracted
support from a wide range of stakeholder groups covering the demand, supply, regulation and
institution aspects of buildings. The event will feature renowned international and local speakers to
share the state-of-the-art technology and innovation for low or zero carbon buildings, and enable a
continuous dialogue on our journey towards zero carbon and sustainability.
