Overview

Please note that this breakfast forum will be held from 09:00 – 12:30 HK time.

In 2021, the Hong Kong SAR Government announced the Hong Kong’s Climate Action Plan 2025 as the directives towards the goal of carbon neutrality, which outlined four major decarbonisation strategies, namely “net-zero electricity generation”, “energy saving and green buildings”, “green transport” and “waste reduction”.  Since then, the society has been working hard to promote sustainable construction with various certificates, champions, tools, etc.  Nonetheless, is there any area we could put more focus to furtherance the net zero infrastructure development?  The objective of this discussion forum is to enhance the awareness of ICE members in Hong Kong on how to lead the construction industry to net zero, as well as gathering their views/ suggestions on how the construction industry stakeholders could work together for further improvement.
