Time: 9:00am – 12:30pm, Friday 16 October 2015
Location: Wang Gungwu Theatre, Graduate House, The University of Hong Kong
Co-organised by: Centre for Innovation in Construction and Infrastructure Development (CICID) of The University of Hong Kong, Construction Industry Council (CIC), Zero Carbon Building (ZCB)
The zero carbon building approach has been adopted in many countries and regions as a government strategy for addressing climate change. However, how stakeholders can work in partnership for delivering zero carbon buildings remains a socio-technical challenge. The Construction Industry Council has funded a research project led by The University of Hong Kong to establish a Hong Kong Zero Carbon Partnership for enhancing public and stakeholder engagement. This project aims 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. In this research zero carbon buildings are interpreted as complex socio-technical systems that embrace low or zero carbon products, innovative processes and multiple stakeholders. A portal is being developed with real-time measurement and monitoring of Hong Kong’s public and stakeholders’ understanding, attitude and behaviour regarding zero carbon building. This event will feature renowned international and local speakers to share state-of-the-art research and development in the area of zero carbon buildings.
