HKGBC is a non-profit-making, overarching body of green building development in Hong Kong, leading the advocacy, strategy, capacity building and technical developments. HKGBC is responsible for operating the BEAM Plus scheme and funding its continuous development.  Every year, significant expenditure is incurred in rating tool and website developments, scheme operations, promotion and educational activities.  The adjustment in fees is necessary to meet the rising costs in these areas.
