Chinachem Group Sustainability Conference 2022

Organised by the Chinachem Group and co-organised by the Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC), Chinachem Group Sustainability Conference 2022 will be held on 24 October 2022 (Monday) at the Nina Hotel Tsuen Wan West, Hong Kong in both physical and online format. The theme of this year's Conference is "Creating Social Impact on the Zero Carbon Journey in Hong Kong".

At the Conference, renowned overseas and local speakers will share on a broad range of inspiring topics and deliver case studies regarding the technical aspects of green buildings, green finance, and offer novel perspectives on how green buildings can intertwine with culture and conservation.

The morning session will focus on the Net Zero green building trend, innovative energy development and construction method, how green finance helps foster sustainable asset development, as well as an international sustainable exemplar of building reuse and revitalisation. On the other hand, the afternoon session will bring to you an interesting perspective on the important roles of green and heritage conservation buildings in creating social impact, which range from tenant engagement to community and culture rejuvenation.
