On 26 October, Mr. Tsun Chen, Secretary General, HKGFA spoke at the first panel discussion on “Perspectives and Applications towards Zero-Carbon-Ready” moderated by Timothy Lok (Swire Properties). Other panellists included Felix Chan (Arup), Ir Sr Jonathan Lee (Savills) and Simon Law (Sino Group).

Tsun emphasised the importance of green finance and green technology in driving a sustainable built environment. He also mentioned the six key pillars which are essential for decarbonising the built environment including how energy performance certification supports the development of green financial products. The Zero-Carbon-Ready Building Certification Scheme launched in September can be a powerful tool and call to action in the pursuit of a sustainable future for the built environment.
