Organised by the Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC), International Conference on Advancing Net Zero, Hong Kong’s first international conference of its kind, took place from 23 – 26 November 2021. 

Themed “Decarbonising High-rise, High-density, Sub-tropical Cities”, the Conference aimed to enhance the knowledge of Hong Kong’s building and construction professionals, as well as those from other parts of the world, on the latest concepts, trends, strategies and technical solutions to decarbonise and advance towards a net zero and sustainable built environment in a high-rise, high-density, sub-tropical city context.

Over 60 renowned local and international speakers from green building councils, building and construction industry, academia and the Government of the HKSAR shared with the audience their insights and case studies in advancing towards net zero throughout the four days of Conference. Winners of HKGBC’s Advancing Net Zero Ideas Competition also presented their ideas and solutions. 

The impact of climate change on the environment and people is global and unprecedented. Building sector being a major contributor to carbon emission globally, its collective and prompt actions to reduce building-related carbon emissions is thus critical to advancing towards net zero carbon. 

The Conference offered CPD hours and took place in virtual format to cater for participants from around the world to participate.
