Promoting Green Buildings

118. Under the current arrangement, a private housing development project is required, among other things, to register for Building Environmental Assessment Method Plus (BEAM Plus) as a prerequisite for application for gross floor area concession for amenity features. We will review this arrangement to further promote green building. In the review, we will consider tightening the prerequisite by requiring a development project to attain specific standards of performance in environmental protection, or even adopt performance-based and site-specific approaches to determine the maximum gross floor area concession.

Heritage Conservation

119. The Government is committed to promoting heritage conservation. So far, five batches of projects under the Revitalising Historic Buildings Through Partnership Scheme have been rolled out, involving a total of 19 historic buildings. Eight have completed revitalisation works and are open to the public. Among these, four have won the Asia-Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation. We will continue to collaborate with NGOs.
