Recognised Certifications and Standards

Although there is no existing well-defined standard for green building products, there are different types of certifications and green building standards to recognise different green properties for building materials and products.

HKGBC Eco-Product Directory accepts different types of green product certifications and environmental standards for building products around the globe, with the view to enhance the transparency of green building products in the market. The key objective is to stimulate both the supply and demand of green building products in the industry and may also encourage product providers to apply for green product labels to enhance the recognition of their products in the market.
