ENVIRONMENT

Climate change is a looming global crisis that

calls for collective actions, and Hongkong Land

has been striving to reduce our carbon footprint

since

›. Our systematically implemented

efforts were rewarded as we met the target of

œ reduction in carbon footprint seven years

ahead of schedule in

ž, which prompted us

to put in place an even more ambitious target

of ž œ reduction by

, compared with

˜ levels.

As of the end of

Ÿ, we have effectively

prevented approximately Ÿ kilo-tonnes of

carbon from being emitted into the atmosphere,

compared with

˜ levels, achieving a

reduction of carbon emission by ™¡˜œ. If we

were to plant trees to absorb the same amount

of carbon in a year, it would have taken  million

trees. This represented a reduction of electricity

consumption of ¡ million kWh between

˜ and

Ÿ, equivalent to an average annual

saving of US£ž million in operational costs.

Such signiicant reductions were made possible

through system optimisation, implementation

of major upgrades, retroits and modernisation

within our Central portfolio, including lift

modernisation, chiller plant replacement and

adoption of LED lighting system.
