BEC - Designing Buildings for A Zero Waste Hong Kong

Supported by the Hong Kong Green Building Council, the Designing Buildings for A Zero Waste Hong Kong would be conducted online on 8 December 2020 (Tuesday).

The Designing Buildings for A Zero Waste Hong Kong is organised by Business Environment Council (BEC) and supported by Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, to host a discussion on efficient waste management in buildings in the city. 

In a high-density vertical city, building design plays a large role in reducing waste. Architects in New York City led the development of Zero Waste Design Guidelines for new and existing buildings to help the city reduce waste. Now leaders in sustainable design from Hong Kong, Singapore and NYC are collaborating to share design strategies, case studies and policy suggestions that can help high density cities reach zero waste goals. Come hear architect Ms Clare Miflin, who led the NYC process, in discussion with leaders of sustainable design in Hong Kong, as we begin this collaborative project.

*Highlights: Ir Dr Cary Chan, Executive Director of HKGBC will be one of the speakers.
