As part of the HKSAR Government’s Climate Action Plan, the Environment Bureau has launched a 4Ts partnership programme. Promoting RCx to building owners is one of the key initiatives. Although RCx can achieve savings with short payback period, it is still not widely adopted by the industry. One of the key challenges is lack of trained practitioners, professionals and services providers.
Tackle that challenge, a comprehensive and systematic training programme under a RCx Training and Registration Scheme should be in place to build up the capacity of the industry. The Hong Kong Green Building Council, with the support by EMSD and other professional institutions, will organise relevant training courses for local engineers and stakeholders to fulfill the training requirement of the registration scheme.
