Sustainable Construction

The construction industry accounts for 36% of worldwide energy usage and 40% of CO2 emissions . In response to the Paris Agreement, Hong Kong’s Climate Action Plan 2030+ sets out carbon emissions target, which aims at 26% to 36% absolute carbon reduction by 2030. The construction industry should seek to achieve an 11% reduction against business-as-usual in 2030.

Sustainable construction aims at reducing industry’s impacts on environmental, social and economic aspects caused by the construction process. Measures include:
  • Green financing
  • Use of low carbon materials and equipment
  • Construction waste sorting and management
  • Innovative technology such as Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) etc.
