Handler Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited has signed an agreement to purchase Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) as part of its sustainability drive.

The certificates are being purchased from CLP Power Hong Kong Limited (CLP Power) equating to 45.9 gigawatt hours of power generated from renewable energy sources.

Each unit of electricity in a REC represents the environmental attributes of electricity that are either generated or purchased by CLP Power from local renewable energy sources, including solar power, wind power and landfill gas projects.

The agreement covers six years commencing in August 2022, and will be equivalent to a total reduction of around 18,000 tonnes of carbon emissions.

The move is the latest step in Hactl’s Green Terminal sustainability programme.

Hactl executive director and chief financial officer Amy Lam said: “Hactl is committed to reducing its carbon footprint as part of the Green Terminal programme, and shares the government’s goal of zero-carbon emissions under its Climate Action Plan 2050.

“We have already installed a giant solar farm on our terminal roof, and taken many other measures to reduce our overall power consumption.”
