[Hong Kong] Seminar on “Testing and Certification for Environmental Excellence”

Supported by the Hong Kong Green Building Council, the Seminar on “Testing and Certification for Environmental Excellence” would be held in Hong Kong on 18 December 2017 (Tuesday).

The Hong Kong Council for Testing and Certification (HKCTC) and the Hong Kong Accreditation Service (HKAS) will co-organise this seminar.

With increasing awareness of the importance of environmental protection, many enterprises and organisations have put in place green management and energy conservation measures. In this regard, the testing and certification industry has been providing valuable support. Local testing and certification bodies are helping to monitor the conditions of our environment. For example, they conduct testing on air samples to assess air quality, take water samples to check the amount of heavy metals, etc. In addition, they provide third party certification services for environmental related management systems to help enterprises and organisations achieve their environmental objectives in accordance with international standards.

This seminar aims to introduce how testing and certification services can help improve the environment and enhance energy efficiency for buildings, facilities and offices. We have invited representatives from the Hong Kong Accreditation Service, professional body and testing and certification organisations to share their insights on the needs for and benefits of different environmental-related testing and certification services. A commercial company will also share its experience in making use of certification service to accomplish its environmental conservation objectives. People working in building and facilities management as well as those who care for the office environment are welcome to join the seminar.
