    About Green Council

    The Green Council is a non-profit, non-partisan environmental organization and certification body of Hong Kong. A group of individuals from different sectors of industry and academics shared the vision to help build Hong Kong into a world-class green city for the future. They formed the Green Council in May 2000, with the aim of encouraging the industrial and commercial sectors to include environmental protection in their production and management processes. The Green Council was registered as a non-profit making organization in December 2000.

    With the motto of “Conservation begins with Education”, the Green Council is fully committed to provide continued education and trainings on sustainable procurement, environmental management, waste management, energy conservation, etc.

    The main sources of funding are from membership fees, public donations and sponsorships by corporations and individuals who share our vision. Where appropriate, we apply for funding from government sources and other charitable organizations for specific projects.
