The zero carbon building approach has been adopted in many countries as a government strategy for addressing climate change. Systemic stakeholder engagement is imperative to the achievement of zero carbon of buildings. The Hong Kong Zero Carbon Partnership has been established with funding support from CIC to help position Hong Kong as a world-class knowledge-based, innovation-driven and multi-stakeholder-engaged hub for zero carbon building in urban environments. The Partnership has also attracted support from a wide range of stakeholder groups covering the demand, supply, regulation and institution aspects of buildings. This event will feature renowned international and local speakers to share how stakeholders can work in partnership effectively for building towards zero carbon and zero energy, and enable discussion on the knowledge, attitude and behavior of zero carbon buildings.
