Understanding the embodied carbon of construction materials and carbon emissions of on-site construction process provides the opportunities to improve the sustainability performance and construction project efficiency.
Start your journey with the CIC Carbon Assessment Tool
The built environment accounts for 70% of Hong Kong’s carbon emissions and the HKSAR Government has committed to reduce its absolute carbon emission by between 26% and 36% by 2030.
The industry needs to play its part. The aim of the CIC Carbon Assessment Tool is to create a common platform to evaluate the carbon performance of buildings and infrastructure in Hong Kong from raw material extraction to the end of construction. The Tool facilitates the construction industry to contribute to the carbon reduction goal.
Measure the carbon footprint of new building and infrastructure projects
User friendly and common platform with localised carbon emissions data
Benchmark for both new buildings and infrastructure projects
Facilitate low carbon design and planning
Compatible with BEAM Plus, carbon audit and ESG reporting
Carbon emission factors for over 300 construction materials
Embodied carbon of construction materials and carbon emission of on-site construction processes
Carbon performance of construction project
Carbon reduction target for the construction industry
