Advancing Net Zero Seminar cum Workshop 2019

Coorganised by the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) and the Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC), the first “Advancing Net Zero Seminar cum Workshop” would be held on 29 November 2019 (Friday). WorldGBC’s ANZ project aims to maximise the chances of limiting global warming to below 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels, as advocated in the Paris Agreement, by drastically reducing operational carbon emissions from buildings by setting an ambitious for all buildings to achieve a net zero target by 2050.

The event will introduce WorldGBC’s Advancing Net Zero (ANZ) project, accompanied by leadership sharing and a workshop on the Net Zero Carbon Building Commitment, the development of a Hong Kong ANZ roadmap, and strategies to decarbonise the built environment in Hong Kong. 12 speakers, representing different stakeholder groups including government, developers, architects, engineers, contractors and green financiers will give a presentation to the audience leading best practices, with challenges and opportunities, towards ANZ in Hong Kong. They will join a discussion from sustainability roadmaps, target setting, case study projects, to embodied carbon and potential green financing options.
