Cundall Hong Kong has been shortlisted as finalist under two categories at the Green Building Award 2021. We are shortlisted in the Green Building Leadership category and the Research and Planning category for the CIC Carbon Assessment Tool.
The Green Building Award is an industry-wide award co-organised by the Hong Kong Green Building Council and Professional Green Building Council (PGBC) to recognise building-related projects and organisations with outstanding performance and contributions in sustainability and the built environment.
The Green Building Leadership Award, a newly added category in the Green Building Award 2019, recognises developers, contractors, consultants, facilities management, and green product industry business with exemplary leadership. There are four fundamental criteria that the organisations will be assessed: policy and goal, industry leadership, communication and advocacy, and innovation and partnership. These categories commemorate organisations’ achievements which demonstrate their willingness to go above and beyond to implement the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
The CIC Carbon Assessment Tool (CAT) is shortlisted under the Research and Planning category. This category recognises the research and planning projects that demonstrate innovation and advancement on sustainability for the built environment.
The CIC CAT is the first online carbon assessment tool in Hong Kong. It is designed to be a common platform for the whole industry to assess, report, and decarbonise the embodied carbon and onsite emission for both building and civil infrastructure projects. Cundall is appointed by the Construction Industry Council (CIC) as the lead consultant to develop this tool.
Joe Tang, Director of the Hong Kong office, comments “We are thrilled to be recognised by the Green Building Awards under two categories. We are very thankful to our clients and working partners for believing and working with us to deliver projects that contribute to a sustainable built environment. We are even more determined to become a carbon positive business in 2025 as part of our Sustainability Roadmap strategy.”
