Key Facts

Buildings are responsible for over 90% of electricity consumption in Hong Kong and account for more than 60% of greenhouse gas emissions

HK BESTOF is developed by Hong Kong Green Building Council Limited as a part of the Benchmarking and Energy Saving Tool (HK BEST) series

Objective

The objective of the HK BESTOF is to promote better energy performance for office buildings by:

  1. Providing an online tool for the building owners to measure and compare their energy consumption to their market peers and to identify potential energy improvement measures to enhance performance;
  2. Give an appropriate class of recognition to office buildings which have achieved outstanding energy performance amongst their market peers while accounting for variations in energy consumption across different building types through the issuance of Certificate and Label.
HK BESTOF offers
  1. Free Benchmarking Tool
    • Free for general public
    • Rate the general energy performance of office buildings
  2. Recognition Scheme
