Hong Kong Green Building Week 2018
Following the success of the previous five years, the Construction Industry Council (CIC) and the Hong Kong Green Building Council are co-organising the Hong Kong Green Building Week (HKGBW) again this year, with the aim to raise public awareness of green building movement and sustainable lifestyle.
Hong Kong Green Building Week 2018 Overall Programme Highlights
Announcements in the Public Interests
API (Announcements in the Public Interests) airtime has been granted by the Information Services Department in all major TV and radio channels to promote the HKGBW.
HKGBW 2018 API will be broadcasted from the end-August for a month long. Please stay tuned for the premiere!
Shop and Wrap
To echo another HKGBC initiative - Hong Kong Green Shop Alliance, we will partner with Alliance members on advocating green shopping culture.
Wrapping cloth is not only an eco-friendly option but also coming back as a popular culture in various cities. Unlike paper and plastic bags, wrapping cloth can be reused and therefore could ease the environmental concern. ‘Shop and Wrap’ calls for action among shoppers by changing their attitude and behaviour via our own version of ‘G-Wrapper’.
