Engaging Hong Kong’s built environment sector for net zero

18 AUGUST 2022 – On Friday 15 July 2022, BCI Central hosted Equinox Hong Kong as a platform for building and construction professionals to network and be inspired by discussions.

The event was held with the support of the Hong Kong Institute of Urban Design (HKIUD)—who held a knowledge hub on the theme of Urbanism, Protocol and City Betterment—and the Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC).

HKGBC’s knowledge hub titled Advancing Net Zero Built Environment saw valuable insights shared with the audience. Ir Dr Cary Chan, Executive Director of Hong Kong Green Building Council, was the moderator that hosted the panel discussion.
