The Hong Kong Green Building Week (HKGBW) is an annual public campaign co-organised by the Construction Industry Council (CIC) and the Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC). Themed “Unite Green Building Powers, Fight for Carbon Neutrality by 2050!”, the 2023 campaign held from 23 September to 29 September encouraged the public to explore and appreciate local green buildings, better understand their importance and benefits, and gather the power of the whole community to achieve the 2050 carbon neutrality target.

Four Green Building Powers
To further enhance the public's recognition of how green buildings benefit humans and the environment, this year’s Hong Kong Green Building Week focuses on four Green Building Powers, including Health and Well-being, Resource Efficiency, Environmental Friendliness and Innovative Elements, and offers a diverse line-up of public activities.
The Hong Kong Green Building Week 2023 officially kicked off on 23 September at the Atrium of the Xiqu Centre in the West Kowloon Cultural District. The event was officiated by Ms Diane WONG Shuk-han, JP, Under Secretary for Environment and Ecology, the Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Mr Ir Thomas HO On-sing, JP, Chairman of the Construction Industry Council, and Dr CHEUNG Tin-cheung, SBS, Chairman of the Hong Kong Green Building Council. Over 100 industry professionals and members of the public attended the ceremony, together witnessing the commencement of this important annual public event to promote green building.
During the kick-off ceremony, an award presentation for the “Let’s Unite! Green Building KOL Video Competition” also took place, showcasing the brilliant creative video works conducted by the public participants which are themed to promote green buildings.
The competition consisted of two categories: the KOL Group and the Thematic Group (Public/Parent-child). All participants were required to follow the guidelines from the "Green Building Guidebook", which required them to produce creative and engaging short videos of designated green buildings. The videos should highlight the Green Building Powers of these locations. Participants were welcome to join more than one category. For more information on the four designated green buildings, four Green Building Powers and the must-read tips of the video competition, please refer to the “Green Building Guidebook".
Winners of each category and “The Most Popular Award” had been announced on the HKGBC social media platforms and the competition website.
