Towards a Sustainable Future Series: Better Buildings

Towards a Sustainable Future Series: Better BuildingsSponsored by the CLP Group
Our iconic Hong Kong skyline hosts an impressive array of buildings, enjoyed by all for work, living or play. However, these buildings were designed and built in an era when there was lower attention on environmental sustainability and decarbonisation. With Hong Kong now committed to be carbon neutral by 2050, building design and office energy consumption are areas in which we can take steps towards contributing to Hong Kong’s green future.
In working towards a more sustainable future, sectors including construction, property, and infrastructure must now revitalise to allow for continued reliance on the comforts we have long experienced, whilst running as efficiently as possible. In addition to becoming more energy efficient, focus should turn towards improving the wellness of environments as we plan for the post-COVID-19 future.
When it comes to energy efficiency, what really works and what are the viable options that are available?
Join our panellists from Sino Group, KPMG and the CLP Group, who will share their expert insights. Panellists will share experiences from their companies’ new infrastructure developments and shed light on the innovations that the industry has been adopting and deploying through the years.
Gain an in-depth understanding of market trends, and more importantly, tangible examples to help your own organisations take actions and adopt innovative solutions to achieve your decarbonisation and wellness goals.
Webinar access will be sent via email to registered guests one hour before the event start time.
