 Event Overview

It is estimated that there are over 42,000 existing buildings in Hong Kong, which account for a potential reduction of 52% in absolute electricity consumption compared to a Business-As-Usual (BAU) scenario. Greening the existing buildings will not only help save energy in the city, but also contribute to health and wellbeing enhancement for building occupants. This seminar will illustrate how property management and facility professionals could make use of green building rating tools to carry out a “green body check” for
the buildings they operate and manage with an aim to improve the buildings’ environmental performance through various aspects such as energy use, water use, indoor environmental quality, and so on. The speaker will also share a few certified green buildings as case studies to further elaborate on what green measures could be implemented through a building’s daily operation and maintenance.
