How we save paper and reduce waste
As well as recycling paper, we have reduced the
amount of paper we use by going digital on all fronts.
We communicate via email instead of sending out paper
circulars, our procurement system is electronic, we save
documents digitally rather than keeping paper files,
we have e-directories and we use a mobile inspection
and patrol system.
Other measures we have adopted to save trees include
the introduction of recycling boxes to promote paper
waste recycling amongst our tenants, and the introduction
of environment-friendly stationery and FSC-certified
paper towels. We also work with our partners and
suppliers to encourage them to save paper, too.
In addition, we work with our laundry service providers
to reuse the wire clothes hangers needed for frontline
staff uniforms; as a result, we saved roughly 27,000
hangers from landfill in 2015. Overall, we recycled about
1,045 tonnes of waste in 2015, significantly reducing
our impact on Hong Kong’s already-overburdened landfills.
Recycling in partnership with our tenants
Hongkong Land is committed to recycling and to helping our
tenants to recycle their waste. In our buildings in Central, we
recycle paper, aluminium cans, plastic bottles, glass bottles from
food and beverages �F&B�, rechargeable batteries, fluorescent tubes
and ink-jet cartridges. You will find recycling facilities for a variety
of forms of waste in each of the refuse collection rooms in our
NEW! Glass bottle
In partnership with the Hong Kong SAR Environmental
Protection Department (EPD), we launched a pilot
glass-recycling programme in September 2015. The
programme targets F&B tenants in our Central portfolio,
and we encourage each of them to participate fully and
to contribute to building a more sustainable community.
The programme serves as a pilot for the wider commercial
community, with experience and the lessons learned
applied to glass recycling practices across Hong Kong’s
commercial sectors. As it is still early days, we give the
EPD constant feedback on how the implementation
process is going, in order to improve and enhance the
programme moving forward.
Tenant support is crucial to our on-going
