With a 7-day campaign themed “Green Buildings TEAM UP for a Zero-carbon Future”, this campaign aims to bring the construction industry, the government and the public together to fight for a zero-carbon future through green buildings. 


Carbon emissions are getting serious in Hong Kong? Let’s go, Green Building Team!

Our activities in buildings account for 90% of electricity consumption in Hong Kong, which equals 60% of carbon emissions! Mr Raymond Wong Ho-yin, the ambassador of the Hong Kong Green Building Week 2020, transformed into a Green Building Expert and ‘team up’ with an adorable Low-Carbon Expert, for a zero-carbon future!
