Message from the Chairperson of the Working Group on Energy Conservation and Sustainability

Sustainability is at the heart of the wide range of activities that the Hang Seng University of Hong Kong (HSUHK) and its community undertaking. We have been putting emphasis on providing a sustainable built campus environment for our research, teaching and learning activities. The principle of sustainability is manifested by HSUHK being the first higher education institution in Hong Kong awarded the BEAM Plus (version 1.1) ‘Platinum’ rating for four of our newer buildings, i.e. S H Ho Academic Building (Block A), Lee Shau Kee Complex (Block B), Lee Quo Wei Academic Building (Block D) and subsequently the BEAM Plus (version 1.2) 'Platinum' Rating for the HSUHK Jockey Club Residential Colleges. This and other recognitions and achievements affirm the University's leading role in promoting green initiatives in the region.

To ride on the success of the flagship event “Symposium on Sustainability and Bamboo” in July 2015, the Working Group on Energy Conservation and Sustainability has been formed with student representation under the Space Allocation and Facilities Management Committee (currently Campus Facilities Management Committee (CFMC)) to identify and facilitate implementation of practical measures on energy conservation and sustainability by engaging staff and students.

We believe that our efforts on energy conservation and sustainability should be from “ground-up”, involving each and every one of YOU, as part of the HSUHK Community. Tell us how we may collectively, continuously and creatively steer towards a more sustainable campus life and culture. You can also join us in our future green initiatives and share with us your ideas. A small step from you, a big step for HSUHK – Let's "Think Green‧Act Green at HSUHK"
