Sustainability 2016

Upgrading our

Central portfolio

As part of Hongkong Land’s sustainability objectives,

we have committed to keeping our properties in

prime condition at all times. Ongoing upgrades

to our Central portfolio are therefore essential.

Our recent upgrade efforts have revolved around

renovating the toilets in each of our properties, as

well as modernising the lifts. To upgrade our toilets,

we introduced various measures to reduce water

consumption – including water-efficient flushing

mechanisms, self-flushing urinals and sensor-operated

faucets. To save energy, we installed motion-sensor

activated LED lighting, and to save paper, we have

installed sensor-activated hand-dryers. We also

introduced double-decker toilet dispensers and Forest

Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified paper towels.

The toilet renovation project is over halfway there.

Renovations have completed at Exchange Square

and Jardine House, Alexandra House is set to

complete this year, while toilet renovations for

Prince’s Building, Gloucester Tower and Edinburgh

Tower will finish in 2017.

We are also in the process of modernising our lifts

to improve energy efficiency and the travelling

experience for lift passengers. In Jardine House,

Gloucester Tower, Edinburgh Tower and Alexandra

House, we have already introduced the latest

technologies, including energy regeneration, and

variable lift speeds to save energy, using superior

microprocessor controls to reduce travel time.

We have also upgraded the lift cars themselves

to enhance the passenger experience. By 2018,

lifts at Exchange Square will also benefit from the

same functionality.
