Overview

Hong Kong is committed to building a sustainable future and to ensuring that our future generations can continue to thrive in a clean and green environment. Hong Kong’s Climate Action Plan 2025 was published in 2021, which set out decarbonisation targets and strategies to achieve carbon neutrality.  

The construction industry is reported to account for over 35% of worldwide energy usage and 40% of CO2 emission. Sustainable design and construction therefore play an important role in reducing impacts on environmental, social and economic aspects.  

This workshop will introduce two local case studies:

  • Kai Tak Sports Park and
  • Boardwalk underneath Island Eastern Corridor.  

With both projects currently under construction, the speakers will highlight examples of sustainable measures and technologies adopted in the design and construction of the two projects. The participants will then be engaged in a floor discussion for exchanging views and ideas around sustainability in design and construction, and how the construction industry can work collectively to further enhance different sustainability aspects.
