“I wish to offer my heartfelt congratulations to the winners of Green Building Award 2019 for their excellent achievements in Green buildings. This year marks the 10th anniversary of HKGBC, and I wish to sincerely thank the government and all partners for their contribution in promoting the Green building movement.
