Mr CHEUNG advocates harmonising green buildings with their surrounding neighbourhood, and instilling smart technology in their design. Mr CHEUNG is looking into how green building design should interface with smart city design, infrastructure and the whole built environment. HKGBC is striving to retro-fit and re-commission the large stock of existing buildings to become sustainable and energy saving in a high density city as part of the worldwide campaign to reach the target of COP21.

Outside the green community, Mr CHEUNG was the Chairman of the Executive Committee of a charitable organisation, which took part in the reconstruction of villages damaged in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake in the Mainland. He was responsible for funding raising and reconstruction project management.
