The CIC–Zero Carbon Park is home to the first zero carbon building in Hong Kong. It acts as a test bed for state-of-the-art eco-building design and technologies, and aims to promote a low-carbon mentality both locally and internationally. CIC-ZCP also serves as an exhibition, education and information centre in order to raise awareness on the importance of green-building design, beyond the industry, and into the community. CIC-ZCP is designed to be energy-positive in the tropics over the course of its life-cycle. The vision, execution and implementation of design innovations are milestone achievements for Hong Kong. To this day, building performance has been continually optimised since its opening in 2012. In addition, CIC-ZCP aspires to boost the neighbourhood’s ecological value, and contribute as a living, breathing piece of infrastructure. With more than 200 different varieties of flowers and trees at CIC-ZCP, it is hoped that this landmark building can create a paradigm shift towards sustainable living, and function as a “city lung”, breathing new life and clean air into Hong Kong.
