One of Hactl’s key aims is to eradicate single-use plastics from its facility, so contributing to a reduction in plastics entering the world’s oceans.
Hactl has been running its “Green Terminal” programme of measures to reduce its environmental impact for many years. The company has won a number of prestigious local and international awards for its achievements to date, which include reusing or recycling 97% of paper, 95% of plastics waste and 68% of wood.
Says Hactl’s Senior Manager – Quality Assurance, Benny Siu, who has spearheaded Green Terminal since its inception: “‘Don’t Wait Act Now’ is the latest and arguably most important phase of Green Terminal, in which we seek to change the habits of our own staff, and our tenants and terminal users.
“With this event and our recent actions, we are asking people to think about their personal impact on the environment, and to make small changes that can make a big difference. We hope that good eco habits nurtured in the workplace will travel home with our staff and be shared with families and friends.
“Hactl is a conscientious and eco-minded member of Hong Kong’s business community, committed to protecting not just our wonderful city, but our wider, living planet. The message of ‘Don’t Wait Act Now’ is clear: we can all make a difference, and reduce our impact on a fragile planet.”
