In the welcome remarks, Mr. Chan Kai-kui, Chairman of the CIC, stated that, “With the objective to facilitate Hong Kong’s Climate Action Plan 2030+, a reduction of 65% to 70% in carbon emissions is set. CIC will work with the construction industry and develop a framework for sustainable buildings, reducing carbon emissions from the industry.”

    Mr. WONG Wai-lun, Michael, took a video for promoting CIC Sustainable Construction Award. He mentioned that the global climate change poses a severe challenge. Hong Kong cannot be insulated from this, which a set of carbon audit guidelines has to beproactively implemented, and an effective way is to strengthen the promotional efforts on sustainable construction. The Government has been taking a lead, issuing the Green Guide and environmental policy on government buildings, such as trying to adopt prefabrication structure to reduce construction waste. The adoption of an innovative technology, Building Information Modelling (BIM), can also reduce the project duration.
