Fostering Quality Living Environment through Environmental Sustainability
The URA endeavours to promote and implement environmentally sustainable and innovative development to improve the built environment and enhance the quality of life in Hong Kong. To this end, where applicable, we incorporate environmentally sustainable measures and facilities into the design and construction of our redevelopment projects.
Our efforts to develop projects in a sustainable way have been well recognised in recent years. The following are remarkable projects awarded with the (final) BEAM Platinum Standard by the Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC):
- Mount Davis 33 in Kennedy Town
- Island Crest and The Nova in Sai Ying Pun
- Queen's Cube and The Avenue in Wan Chai
- Vision City in Tsuen Wan
- i-home. Florient Rise, Park Summit and Lime Stardom in Tai Kok Tsui
- Baker Residences in Hung Hom
- Macpherson Place in Mong Kok
- Park Metropolitan in Kwun Tong
- Trinity Towers in Sham Shui Po
In addition, the URA's Kai Tak Development was awarded the BEAM Plus Final Platinum Rating, the first ever received by URA. The Kai Tak Development has also obtained the Grand Award of the Green Building Award granted by the Hong Kong Green Building Council for its environmentally-sustainable design.
Under its rehabilitation programmes, URA has received an award for "Outstanding Corporate Responsibility - HKGBC Green Product Accreditation and Standard (Statutory Body)" for its effort under the Green Items Subsidy of its Integrated Building Maintenance Assistance Scheme.
The URA will continue to use every appropriate and practical measure and apply new thinking to protect the environment in its future projects.
