Organised by the Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC), International Conference on Advancing Net Zero, Hong Kong's first international conference of its kind, will take place from 23 – 26 November 2021.
Themed "Decarbonising High-rise, High-density, Sub-tropical Cities", the Conference aims to enhance the knowledge of Hong Kong's building and construction professionals, as well as those from other parts of the world, on the latest concepts, trends, strategies and technical solutions to decarbonise and advance towards a net zero and sustainable built environment in a high-rise, high-density, sub-tropical city context.

The impact of climate change on the environment and people is global and unprecedented. Building sector being a major contributor to carbon emission globally, its collective and prompt actions to reduce building-related carbon emissions is thus critical to advancing towards net zero carbon.
