For the Club environmental sustainability is about much more than being a responsible corporate citizen. It is part of our wider and long-standing commitment to the betterment of Hong Kong.
By optimising our energy efficiency, we can improve our business performance and help keep the Club competitive and sustainable. By reducing our carbon footprint and minimising waste through reduction, reuse and recycling, we can set an example to the community at large, making full use of the Club’s many long-standing community partnerships to help create a greener, better Hong Kong for future generations.
In bringing this vision to reality, we seek to identify and adopt international best practices and embed sustainability concepts into all of the Club’s major processes and operations, setting measurable targets for our use of energy and resources, and fully engaging our employees.
The Club is focusing on its carbon emissions, its energy efficiency and on the reduction or recycling of waste materials. It also seeks to demonstrate its responsible care for the environment at the sites where it operates.
Electricity use has been reduced by 5.1% since the base year 2009/10 through significant investment in technology upgrades and by optimising plant operations.
In an effort to "Use Wisely & Waste Less", the Club explores its use of resources and sets targets to reduce life-cycle impacts.
