Hactl wins top airport carbon reduction award HONG Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) has taken top place in the first-ever Hong Kong International Airport Car- bon Reduction Awards in the above 10,000 tonnes category. The award scheme, sponsored by the Airport Authority, recognises the best carbon reduction performers, as well as best practice and innovation in carbon reduction among the 54 airport business partners signed up to the initiative. To enable fair compari- sons, all participants are grouped into three categories according to their annual carbon footprints: Below 2,000 tonnes, 2,000 to 10,000 tonnes and above 10,000 tonnes. Hactl’s award as overall cat- egory winner was given for its outstanding carbon reduction achievement, measured monthly through the Airport Authority’s Carbon Audit System, and using 2015 as a basis. As one of the airport commu- nity’s largest and most indus- trialised operators, Hactl’s own efforts have helped the airport to achieve its overall target of 25 per cent carbon reduction. Significant contributors to the latest carbon reduction suc- cess were optimisation of the mechanical ventilation and air conditioning chiller plant through re-programming and greater use of the most efficient units, the in- stallation of plastic strip partitions dividing the Box Storage System from the rest of the cargo ter- minal, reducing warm air leakage into the air conditioned zone and the installation of high intensity Benny Siu, Hactl’s senior manager – Quality Assurance, receives the award from Fred Lam Tin- fuk, ceo of Airport Authority Hong Kong (left) and Tse Chin-wan, under secretary for the Environment (right). lights above the driveway of the Cargo Storage System plus re- placement of fluorescent lighting at the cargo transfer point with low level 100W LED lighting. Hactl’s Senior Manager – Quali- ty Assurance, Benny Siu received the company’s award from Fred Lam Tin-fuk, ceo of Airport Authority Hong Kong and Tse Chin-wan, under secretary for the Environment, at a ceremony attended by the top management of the airport business partners participating in the scheme. Siu said: “Our carbon footprint has been steadily reduced from 2008 to 2015, with an inde- pendently-audited reduction of 12 per cent from 2011-2013 alone. “As we become more and more environmentally friendly, it naturally becomes more challeng- ing to make significant further improvements. Nevertheless, we target five per cent further carbon reduction by 2020, and will continue to look for new and better ways to run our terminal so that its overall environmental im- pact – not just in carbon footprint terms - is minimised.
