The English name ZCB is an acronym for Zero Carbon Building and sounds like "sexy bee" which is a symbol of sustainability and easy to remember. Its Chinese name “零碳天地” literally means “Zero Carbon World”. Both names are the winning submissions of a naming competition that attracted more than 1,700 entries. On 26 June 2012, a grand opening ceremony was held to celebrate the completion of ZCB, which was officiated by Mr. John Tsang, Financial Secretary and Mr. Lee Shing-see, Chairman of CIC. On 5 January 2013, ZCB was officially opened to public. It targets to attract over 40,000 visitors a year and welcomes visits upon prior appointment.
