Caring For the Environment

Energy Management

  • AsiaWorld-Expo was awarded the “Class of Good” Energywi$e Label of the Hong Kong Awards for Environmental Excellence (HKAEE). Even Better, AsiaWorld-Expo was named as one of Hong Kong’s top three most energy-saving organizations by the Energywi$e Label. To achieve this honour, the venue beat over 300 other organizations in a wide range of sectors such as financial services, manufacturing, property management, retail and trading, transport and logistics.
  • To minimise energy consumption, AsiaWorld-Expo uses Solar Control Film on its skylights, which effectively reduces indoor temperatures by 2-3C on sunny days. Independent lighting zones further enable energy savings by allowing lights to be used only when needed. The venue likewise uses Water-cooled Chillers, Thermal Storage Plant and Air Handling Units to optimise the operational efficiency of the air-conditioning system.

Ecology

  • To sustain the eco-friendly momentum, AsiaWorld-Expo introduced a series of landmark initiatives, including the launch of innovative “Ocean-Friendly Menu” and “CarbonCare Menu”. To protect the ocean’s ecological diversity, AsiaWorld-Expo offers customised menus using seafood from sustainable sources according to WWF-Hong Kong’s Seafood Guide. An alternative to the Ocean-Friendly Menu is AsiaWorld-Expo’s CarbonCare Menu in which ingredients are sourced and prepared in energy-saving methods to minimise carbon footprint.
