Our Approach to Sustainability
‘Our sustainability vision is to strengthen HKIA’s ability to operate and grow profitably in a changing and challenging economic, ecological, technological and social environment, while developing a robust culture of sustainability throughout the organisation.’
Within AAHK, sustainability is managed through different entities within the organisation. The current management structure is illustrated in the diagram below.
The Business Development Committee has the mandate to oversee AAHK’s sustainability, as stated in its Terms of Reference.
The Executive Director, Engineering & Technology (EDET) has overall responsibility for AAHK’s sustainability management and performance.
Under the EDET, the Sustainability Department is responsible for developing and rolling out AAHK’s sustainability strategy, management and reporting systems.
The Sustainability Working Group comprises representatives from departments across AAHK who support the development of AAHK’s sustainability reporting and framework.
AAHK’s corporate governance framework and practices are outlined in the Corporate Governance section of our 2017/18 Annual Report.
AAHK outsources many of the airport’s operational functions to franchisees, tenants and Government departments. We therefore adopt a three-pronged approach to sustainability management. The principles of ‘Control, Guide and Influence’ reflect the different levels of control we exercise over the various aspects of airport operation.
