Implementing Green Operations

We are committed to always minimising the potential environmental impact of our business operations and take measures towards low-carbon and energy efficient operations. Besides, we established 5 green operation management goals They are energy, carbon emissions, water consumption, paper consumption and wastes disposal, managing the environmental footprint of our operations is also implemented.


Measures for energy saving and emission reduction

To cope with climate change, we have put in place measures for energy saving, carbon reduction and emission reduction in order to eliminate unnecessary carbon emissions from our daily operations and gradually move towards carbon neutrality:


Implementing smart energy management

We have applied retro-commissioning (RCx) to chillers system of Bank of China Centre to enhance energy efficiency continuously. We also keep promoting the development of renewable energy such as carrying out feasibility study of installation of solar panels and wind power technology.

To modify the fitting out work, we are gradually introducing highly energy-efficient equipment and green products, such as energy saving lighting, high-efficiency air-conditioning systems, water-saving sanitary appliances, electrical appliances with Grade 1 energy labels, etc.

We are also adopting natural lighting in our lobbies and installing solar insulation window films to reduce solar gain, in order to save electricity and enhance the efficiency of chiller system.
