Green Buildings

Hong Kong's buildings consume 90% of the territory's electricity and are the origin of 67% of its GHG emissions.  CUHK places due emphasis on reducing future GHG emissions and overall environmental impacts from campus buildings, as well as familiarising students and staff with the important role of building design in sustainable development.  Key areas are highlighted below:

CUHK takes advantage of natural lighting and ventilation as far as possible, and optimizes the efficiency of installed building systems.

Escalators at the Yasumoto International Academic Park and Wu Ho Man Yuen Building further encourage walking from the northern exit of University MTR Station to the Central Campus.

Roof gardens are being built on new buildings to reduce the amount of electricity required for air conditioning of their top floors.

Tree protection during construction

Green measures are being taken to minimise disturbance to campus users and wildlife during the construction phase.

Under its 2012 Sustainability Policy, the University strives to achieve, where practicable, the highest green building certification under BEAM (Building Environmental Assessment Method) or BEAM Plus (or equivalent) for all new buildings.
