    530 Enterprises with over 1,100 Environmental Projects
    BOCHK Corporate Environmental Leadership Awards
    Yield Fruitful Results

    A total of 530 enterprises from manufacturing and services sectors took part in the 2016 BOCHK Corporate Environmental Leadership Awards, co-organised by the Federation of Hong Kong Industries (FHKI) and Bank of China (Hong Kong) (BOCHK). The Awards aim to encourage and recognise enterprises of manufacturing and services sectors operating in the Pan Pearl River Delta region to enhance their environmental performances.

    The Hon CY Leung, Chief Executive of the HKSAR; Mr Lin Jingzhen, Deputy Chief Executive of BOCHK; and FHKI Chairman Prof Daniel M Cheng presented awards to the 2016 winners and kick started the 2017 Awards Scheme at the ceremony held today.
     
    A total of 1,118 environmental projects were completed by these 530 enterprises, which collectively reduced annual electricity consumption by more than 283 million kilowatt hours – equivalent to the electricity consumed in one year by 32,000 average four-member households in Hong Kong. Other collective achievements include cutting annual water usage by 1.1 million tonnes (equivalent to the volume of 280 standard 50-metre swimming pools) and reducing annual waste by 160,000 tonnes (an amount that would cover Shing Mun Reservoir about 31 times). In addition, almost 370,000 tonnes of materials were also recycled (an amount that would cover an area equivalent to 9,700 Victoria Parks).

    Prof Cheng said, “The record-breaking participation result of 530 companies validates our continuous efforts in promoting environmental initiatives in Hong Kong and the Pan PRD region. Last month, I joined the delegation led by Chief Executive to attend the Belt and Road Forum for International Co-operation in Beijing. With the gradual implementation of the national Belt and Road Initiative, it is foreseen that its related construction and infrastructure projects will be closely intertwined with the green development. Green, low-carbon and sustainable production methods are what it take to meet the targets set for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. I hereby call for all companies, regardless of size or industries, to continue contributing to the environment and support the national policies.’

    Mr Lin said, “2017 celebrates Bank of China’s centennial services in Hong Kong. BOCHK closely follows our strategic goal of Serving Society, Delivering Excellence to achieve sustainable development. We are committed to minimising the environmental impacts of business development and promoting environmentally responsible behaviours. Since 2015, together with the FHKI, we have co-organised the BOCHK Corporate Environmental Leadership Awards Scheme to encourage and drive enterprises to adopt environmental practices, which in turn helps them fulfill corporate social responsibility, enhance competitive advantage and achieve a win-win for both business and society. We also encourage our enterprise customers to participate in the Awards so as to work together for a better environment.”

    The Hong Kong and China Gas Co Ltd (Towngas) and Kai Shing Management Services Ltd - East Point City (Commercial) were conferred with Gold Awards in Manufacturing Sector and Services Sector respectively.

    As a supplier of clean and low-carbon energy in Hong Kong, Towngas has established a comprehensive environmental management system and organisational structure to enhance environmental protection. To reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality, clean natural gas and low-sulphur naphtha are being utilised as the feedstock for production of town gas. Moreover, landfill gas is utilised as heating fuel in production process. All of these measures help alleviate adverse effects of climate change. In 2015, the Smart Riser Jacket was developed, a new technology to repair corroded gas pipes. It saves costs and time for pipe replacement and reduces 70% of steel usage. Towngas Telecom Hong Kong Data Centre 2 located at Tseung Kwan O utilises environmentally-friendly technologies which enhance energy efficiency. To encounter climate change, a corporate climate change risk assessment and a table-top exercise with the topic of extreme weather have been completed respectively.

    East Point City (Commercial) City is located in Hang Hau of Tseung Kwan O. Abound by the company motto, "protect the environment" of Kai Shing Management Services Limited, East Point City (Commercial) shoulders the mission of promoting environmental protection and organises different green programmes to visitors and tenants to achieve the goal of waste reduction and energy saving. These programmes include the installation of PPO Energy-Saving Devices and electric vehicle charging station in shopping malls, the implementation of comprehensive recycling programs, the establishment of Green Partner Program to encourage tenants' green initiatives, the collection of food waste from tenants and nearby primary and secondary schools. They have organised various environmental events throughout the years, including "Little Green Academy" and “Green Project for Disadvantage Minority Group". They aim to nurture the green habits of citizens imperceptibly via the participation in the environmental protection activities so as to respond to their motto of “Aggregate the Power of you and me, Let’s create a Green & Care Community together”.

    In support of the national Belt and Road Initiative, a “Belt and Road Environmental Leadership Recognition Award” was specially set up to recognise the outstanding performance of the enterprise implementing environmental protection measures in the related areas. The awardee - The Hong Kong and China Gas Co Ltd - Towngas now operates more than 240 projects in 26 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions in mainland China. These diverse projects include piped city-gas projects, upstream and midstream projects, water supply and wastewater treatment, natural gas filling stations, new energy exploration and utilisation as well as telecommunication business. In recent years, the Chinese government is determined to develop the core Belt and Road regions. Towngas strives to supply safe and reliable as well as clean and low carbon energy and telecommunication services to related regions in mainland China.

     

    The organisers also presented certificates to a number of companies as ‘EcoChallenger’ (for completing three environmental projects or more) and ‘EcoPartner’ (for completing one or two environmental projects). Among them, 54 companies were also recognised for having participated in the Awards for five consecutive years or more, with another 24 companies being recognised for three years of consecutive participation.

    The 2017 BOCHK Corporate Environmental Leadership Awards are now open for application. Manufacturing and services enterprises operating in Hong Kong or Pan PRD region with valid business registrations are welcome to apply. Eligible enterprises should have completed at least one environmental project between 1 January and 31 December 2016. The deadline for application is 31 October 2017 (Tuesday).
