Hongkong Land's core business activities are property investment, management and development. Hongkong Land is committed to sustainability for the properties we developed and manage to minimise our impact upon the environment as far as is practicable. In doing so, we create long-term value and minimise risk to our business. Hongkong Land integrates environmental, social and economic considerations to deliver sustainable development and investment outcomes across its properties for the benefit of clients, employees, shareholders, our community and the environment. At Hongkong Land, we are mindful of our carbon footprint, and have been striving to reduce it. Between 2008 and 2012, the carbon footprint, or greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, of our Central portfolio was reduced by 19%. This corresponds to a cumulative carbon reduction of about 60,000 tonnes. This has mainly been achieved as a result of a reduction in electricity consumption through upgrades, retrofits and modernisations across the entire Central portfolio. Major activities and measures include lift modernisation, replacement of the chiller plant with a more energy-efficient one, and a retrofit of lighting systems with LED. We are aware of the issue of waste. In order to reduce the generation of solid waste and enhance recycling, we implement systematic waste management programmes. In 2012, about 1,300 tonnes of materials were recycled from buildings in our Central portfolio. Our other major green building initatives include reducing potable water consumption by utilising water-efficient fixtures and reuse of sea water from the air-conditioning system for flushing and maintaining high standards of indoor air quality and water quality.
