• Hong Kong Green Building Council launches Green Shop Guide

    15 May 2014

    Municipal solid waste management is one of the latest environmental issues to hit the headlines.

    Some shopping malls and shops have accelerated efforts to reduce waste, while implementing energy and environmental improvement measures such as recycling and reuse as well as introducing green technology to treat waste, including food waste.

    HKGBC PR Photo 3Shopping is an integral part of Hong Kong life. If the retail industry demonstrates its commitment to waste reduction and saving energy, it will significantly ease the burden on landfills and result in a considerable reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

    In view of this, the Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC) has announced the launch of the Hong Kong Green Shop Guide (the Guide), a new set of guidelines to inform retail stakeholders, including developers, facility managers, mall and shop owners and tenants, as well as consumers, of industry standards on sustainable planning and building.

    The Guide aims at encouraging the sector to pursue green building measures and eco-friendly purchasing habits among the general public.
