With Earth Day just around the corner, QNET has scored another accolade in Hong Kong – this time for its environmental friendliness.
The company was recently accorded the Carbon “Less” Award in the Hong Kong Awards for Environment Excellence (HKAEE). Led by the Environmental Campaign Committee (ECC), HKAEE aims to encourage businesses to go green and recognise those that have taken strides to reduce their carbon footprint.
As a first time participant, in order to qualify, QNET needed to have a 3 per cent reduction in its overall carbon footprint against baseline.
“This recognition strikes close to home, as the environment has been an important pillar of the company’s values,” says QNET Director Ms Malou Caluza.
“We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint even more over the next few years and implement additional green measures in the office.”
To that end, QNET’s new office in Hong Kong is equipped with special features such as energy-efficient lighting, and eco-labelled recycled materials for carpets and workstations. Employees are also encouraged to recycle with special bins placed on all floors.
