Hong Kong’s largest independent air cargo handler, Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl), has highlighted its many environmental achievements in a new video as part of its contribution to sustainability.
In a 4-minute clip, Hactl showed the different measures to go green, including conversion to LED lighting, installation of a large solar farm on its terminal roof, switching to electric ramp vehicles and forklifts, banning of single-use plastics, and promoting upcycling and transplanting trees to nearby schools.
The cargo handler also noted it now consistently recycles 90 percent of paper, cardboard and plastics and recycles 1,000 tonnes of discarded wooden pallets every year.
Its lighting energy consumption has also been reduced by over 30 percent in the past decade, thanks to its investments in many energy-saving measures and adoption of innovations through collaborations with local educational institutions.
Hactl said that all of its sustainability activities are encapsulated in its “Green Terminal” agenda, which aims to position the company as the world’s most ecofriendly air cargo handling operations.
“Hactl’s numerous environmental achievements, realised through the enthusiasm of our staff, are something of which we are all very proud. It would have been easy to forget about the environment during the enormous challenges of the past year, but we were determined not to allow our strong sustainability progress to falter, so have maintained our momentum with further new initiatives,” said Hactl chief Wilson Kwong.
“What we have proven time and again is that sustainability measures are not simply unwelcome extra costs: they often make sound business sense,” he added. “This video is a tribute to our team for all they have achieved, a showcase for some of our many initiatives, and—hopefully—an inspiration to others in our industry. Many small actions can make a big difference.”
