Donation and fundraising
Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) participated in the Green Power Hike for the fifth consecutive year on 2 February 2013. The annual walkathon aims to raise funds for environmental education and conservation programmes throughout Hong Kong. This year, the Airport Authority (AA) took the lead in forming the "Aviation and Airport Services Cup", encouraging members of the airport community to support this meaningful hike for charity and good health.
For the fourth year running, the AA supported WWF's Walk for Nature held at the Mai Po Nature Reserve. Around 25 AA staff and their families and friends joined the event and enjoyed the beautiful natural environment while viewing bird hides, fishponds, reed beds and shrimp ponds at close range. WWF's Walk for Nature is one of the community outreach events that the AA supports, aiming to raise public awareness in environmental conservation.
The AA continued to foster a green lifestyle among its staff by participating in the annual Walk for the Environment 2012 on 18 March. 22 AA staff and family members enjoyed healthy exercise while contributing to a meaningful cause by hiking through the five kilometre route from the Ma On Shan Country Park Barbecue Site to Sai Kung Po Lo Che.
The AA displayed its full support towards a green future by participating and raising funds in the 19th Green Power Hike on 14 January 2012. The annual event is part of Green Power's efforts to promote environmental education and conservation in Hong Kong. A total of HK$72,000 was raised by the AA during the event.
