氣候變化是人類最大的挑戰。香港特區政府已推出一系列減低溫室氣體 (GHG) 排放的措施，期望在2020年前把香港的碳強度比對在2005年時能降低 50% 至60%。
由此可見，建造業對於溫室氣體減排擔當著重要角色。 根據香港建造業議會條例，建造業議會其中一個重要職能就是為推動環境保護、可持續建設以及提升建造質素。有見及此，建造業議會與香港政府合作發展了本港第一幢零碳建築- 零碳天地。
Climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing mankind. Hong Kong SAR Government is embarking upon a series of measures to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and has proposed a target of reducing 50% to 60% Carbon Intensity by 2020 on the 2005 basis.
In Hong Kong, buildings account for 60% of total GHG emissions, more than any other sectors. By transforming the built environment to be more energy-efficient and climate-friendly, the building sector can play a major role in reducing the threat of climate change.
As such, the construction industry has a significant role to play in GHG emissions reduction. Within the ambit of the Construction Industry Council Ordinance, one of the functions of Construction Industry Council (CIC) is to promote good practices in the construction industry in relation to environmental protection, sustainable construction and other areas conducive to improving construction quality. On this basis, CIC, in collaboration with the Hong Kong Government, developed the ZCB, the Hong Kong's first zero carbon building.
A Task Force consisted of top green building specialists, engineers and key stakeholders was specifically set up to steer the entire process of this project development. All relevant professional institutions and stakeholders provided valuable inputs to the making of ZCB through an extensive consultation programme.
ZCB is a pioneering and inspiring project. It will not only serve as a platform for the construction industry to share knowledge and expertise in low/zero carbon building design and technologies, but also help to raise community awareness of low carbon living.
