The Hong Kong Green Building Council Limited (HKGBC) is a non-profit, member led organisation established in 2009 which strives to promote the standards and developments of sustainable buildings in Hong Kong.  The HKGBC aims to raise green building awareness by engaging the public, the industry and the government, and to develop practical solutions for Hong Kong’s unique, subtropical built environment of high-rise, high density urban area, leading Hong Kong to become a world’s exemplar of green building development.

Our passion for a sustainable built environment is the motivating force to achieve our goals. The wide experience and deep insight of our members and experts is the underlying foundation for real results.

Our Vision

To help save the planet and improve the wellbeing of the people of Hong Kong by transforming the city into a greener built environment.

Our Mission

To lead market transformation by advocating green policies to the Government; introducing green building practices to all stakeholders; setting design, construction and management standards for the building profession; and promoting green living to the people of Hong Kong.

Behind Our Logo

The logo of the HKGBC reflects our position in local green building movement. Inspired by the five-petal white Bauhinia blakeana, the city’s floral emblem, on the flag of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, the flower-like design symbolises our role as an overarching body of green building development in Hong Kong.

The design of each petal also resembles aerial view of a tall building. As the five petals group together, they form Hong Kong’s unique built environment of high-rise, high density urban area, while the gradient colour represents the vision of progressive change to a low carbon metropolis.
