(Click here to see the event flyer)

This event is organised by the Hong Kong Green Building Council.

In view of the recent social activities and special arrangement on public transportation, we regret to inform you that this CPD event has to be cancelled for the sake of safety.

As cities struggle with the pressure to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, better support green jobs, and hyper-competitive real estate markets, they must find new and creative solutions that address short and long-term issues. This includes creating a low or zero-carbon future, which requires a step-by-step process to retrofit our existing communities, and ensure all future builds are net zero-carbon operations by 2050. From policy to infrastructure to new and old buildings, this session will look at how we can create cities that improve lives through deep carbon reduction, creating co-benefits for people and the planet.
