Aims and Eligibility


The Carbon Reduction Certificates scheme (renamed from the former Carbon“Less” Certificates) aims to recognise those buildings or organisations that achieved a verified absolute reduction of overall carbon emissions. Specific objectives are to:

  • Encourage local buildings and organisations to identify, and take measures to reduce their carbon footprints;
  • Provide recognition to participants according to their respective levels of achievements in carbon footprint reduction; and
  • Facilitate reporting of third-party verified achievements of overall carbon footprint reduction.


The Carbon Reduction Certificates scheme is open to the following three types of organisations:

  • Type 1 – Residential building, commerical buildings, industrial buildings mainly of office-based nature and buildings of institutional purpose within Hong Kong ;
  • Type 2 – Office-based organisations/operational units within Hong Kong ; and
  • Type 3 – Other non-industrial trades operated within Hong Kong .
