Shell Siu Lam Station was opened in February 2018, introducing innovative elements from the start. The design of the station building adopted integrative energy management system such as motion-activated air conditioning and electricity consumption monitoring systems. In construction of the station, more than 60% of the building materials contain recycled contents, and more than 50% of the furniture were reused.
To make the environment greener and help reducing carbon emission, Shell also made the ground-breaking move to install a 12-square-metre green wall. Amongst other green building attributes, Siu Lam station is equipped with recycling bins, a collection box for rechargeable batteries and a self-serve water machine to encourage the use of reusable bottles and cups.
As an alignment to the Group’s commitment to help build a sustainable energy future, the Shell Group announced its ambition to halve the net carbon footprint of its energy projects by 2050. Shell is dedicated to setting the benchmark for sustainable, socially responsible operations. Our Siu Lam station was purposefully designed to showcase Shell’s determination to develop with innovation and care for the surrounding community and environment. With this new BEAM Plus Gold rating in hand, we will continue to place strong efforts on being a pioneer in promoting and practicing sustainable development.
