Green Building Award 2012 (GBA 2012) is organised by the Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC) with Professional Green Building Council (PGBC) to provide recognition to building-related projects with outstanding performance and contributions in sustainability and the built environment and also to transform the mainstream market towards wider adoption of sustainable planning, design, construction, management, operation, maintenance, renovation and decommissioning of buildings.

HKGBC was founded by four major construction industry and environmental organisations:

  • Construction Industry Council (CIC) 
  • Business Environment Council (BEC)
  • BEAM Society (BEAM)
  • Professional Green Building Council (PGBC)

PGBC was co-founded by five building related professional institutes:

  • The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE)
  • The Hong Kong Institute of Landscape Architects (HKILA)
  • The Hong Kong Institute of Planners (HKIP)
  • The Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors (HKIS)

GBA Logo

The spherical GBA logo embraces multiple overlapping spheres depicting global sustainability elements. They interlock and evolve harmoniously to form an infinite cycle of dynamic forces for the future generations. Central to the GBA globe is the integration of green with Mother Nature - water, earth and sky.
