Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC)
The Hong Kong Green Building Council Limited (HKGBC) is a non-profit, member led organisation established in 2009 and has become a public body since 2016 with a mission to promote the standards and developments of sustainable buildings in Hong Kong. The HKGBC aims to raise green building awareness by engaging the public, the industry and the government, and to develop practical solutions for Hong Kong’s unique, subtropical built environment of high-rise, high density urban area, leading Hong Kong to become a world’s exemplar of green building development.
Our passion for a sustainable built environment is the motivating force to achieve our goals. The wide experience and deep insight of our members and experts is the underlying foundation for real results.
The four founding members of the HKGBC, namely Construction Industry Council (CIC), Business Environment Council (BEC), BEAM Society Limited (BSL), and Professional Green Building Council (PGBC), represent every stage of the building life cycle and green building value chain.
