Tackling the threats of climate change is one of our current and long-term business sustainability goals. Since 2008, protection against climate was wider considered within our business and became an integral part of our environmental policy. We conducted a Carbon Footprint of our operations in 2008 and using the 2007 data as the baseline for determining our carbon reduction targets.
Alliance puts in place the ISO14001 environmental management system, invests in slurry water handling system to recycle the aggregates and waste water, Carbon Footprints our operations and our concrete products, and initiates to reduce the emissions.
We also joint the CarbonSmart Programme, which aimed at encouraging industry's participation in carbon audit and reduction, facilitating the development of environmental industries, in order to shape Hong Kong as a low carbon city. In 2015, we received CarbonSmart Achiever Good Level Award.
To bring our performance to next level up, Alliance is determined to go for the ISO50001 Energy Management System certification. We developed the energy management system, carried out initial energy review, and put in place the energy saving targets.
Climate change affects everyone and we must play our part as well to practice energy saving at home.
