Reducing energy use and carbon emissions of buildings is an important aspect of green building, and is highly significant to ensuring energy security, minimising environmental impact and safeguarding quality of life of people. There have emerged many zero carbon buildings worldwide, while to achieve zero carbon for high-rise buildings is very challenging. This seminar aims to enhance the understanding and practices of the Hong Kong construction industry of working towards zero carbon buildings. There will be a blend of local and overseas speakers who will share with the audience the state-of-the-art of knowledge and practices of low or zero carbon buildings.
