Apart from the two main characters with a big grey ball on each of their bodies, symbolising carbon emission, the mascot of the HKGBW, “Green Building Buddy” was upgraded as “Captain Green Building” to celebrate the 10th anniversary of HKGBW. Themed “10 out of 10 for Green Building. Carbon Neutrality by 2050!”, “Captain Green Building” in the video showed us the ten green building elements and engaged all of us to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 together.

Mr TSE Chin-wan, BBS, JP, Secretary for Environment and Ecology, Ir Thomas HO On-shing, JP, Chairman of the CIC, and Mr CHEUNG Hau-wai, SBS, Chairman of the HKGBC attended as the Officiating Guests. Around 100 guests from government representatives, industry professionals and experts participated in the event. Themed “10 out of 10 for Green Building. Carbon Neutrality by 2050!”, the Officiating Guests kicked off the HKGBW 2022 by putting giant green building blocks one by one, symbolising the three parties would work together to build up a carbon-neutral green building city.


At the ceremony, the Officiating Guests also presented the prizes to the winners of “10 out of 10 for Green Building KOL Video Competition” and recognised the gorgeous winning entries. Besides, the Kick-off Ceremony marked the official launch of “Greenbuildingverse”, a two-week online interactive game encourages the participants to finish online and onsite missions, and strive to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 together.





To celebrate the 10th anniversary of HKGBW, “10 out of 10 for Green Building KOL Video Competition” was launched as an opening programme of the HKGBW 2022. The public was encouraged to act as green building KOLs, developing a video from a theme related to “10” and “Green Building” to capture the beauty of one green building from the ten designated local green buildings and introduce their sustainable features. Throughout the competition, the public could learn the benefits of green buildings and the importance of carbon reduction.

For more information on the ten designated green buildings, ten green building elements and the must-read tips of the video competition, please refer to “Ten Designated Green Buildings Guide Book” for more production aspirations, or rewatch the Video Production Workshop and Demonstration Video. The competition results have been announced on our social media platforms and competition website.
