Hactl wins green accolade following 12% carbon reduction
AUG 17, 2015: Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Ltd (Hactl) has received a “Carbon Reduction Certificate” from the Environmental Campaign Committee (ECC), awarded under the Hong Kong Awards for Environmental Excellence scheme, in recognition of Hactl’s success in reducing its carbon footprint. The ECC recognises organisations that achieve its target of 3 percent annual carbon reduction. According to the independent assessment conducted by British Standards Institution (BSI) Pacific Limited in 2014, Hactl reduced its carbon footprint by no less than 12 percent during the twelve months of the survey. The carbon reduction certificate is valid for a period of three years. The impressive results of Hactl’s green efforts are the product of a number of feasibility studies, gap analyses and meetings with eco-pioneers - leading to numerous initiatives including the use of electric vehicles; energy saving through improvements to air conditioning, refrigeration, lighting, and forklift battery charging systems; and increased use of biodiesel. Says Hactl’s Manager - Quality Assurance, Benny Siu, “Hactl is a committed supporter of environmental initiatives. We are very pleased to have achieved this 12 percent carbon reduction, which is remarkable in environmental circles. “This certification demonstrates that Hactl cares, and shows how much can be achieved through determination, innovation and investment.” He added.
