• Platinum – LEED professionals group launched

    6 May 2013

    In March over 100 sustainable building leaders attended the launch of the Platinum – LEED Professionals Group at a reception at Holiday Inn Express SOHO Hotel, the first certified LEED Platinum project in Hong Kong.

    LEED 4Platinum is a not-for-profit organization and is operated by passionate volunteers who provide a forum to support the needs of LEED professionals in Hong Kong.

    The key objective is to create a platform to providing advice and support to all LEED professionals, create networking opportunities for LEED and other sustainable building professionals, sharing knowledge about sustainability, green building and LEED issues, assist LEED APs and Green Associates to achieve their Credential Maintenance Program requirements, advise professionals interested in acquiring a LEED qualifications and to provide feedback on using LEED in Asia, acting as a communication conduit  with USGBC.

    Platinum welcome participation by LEED professionals and non-LEED professionals alike, whether they are based in Hong Kong, elsewhere in the region of Asia and simply have an interest in green building issues in Asia.

    For inquiries and membership registration, contact the Platinum Committee at [email protected].
