Airport Authority Publishes Sustainability Report 2014/15


(HONG KONG, 30 October 2015) – The Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) today released its Sustainability Report 2014/15, “Growing Together”.  The report details the AA’s sustainability performance and management approach in the fiscal year ending 31 March 2015, covering the areas of economic contribution, airport growth, operational excellence, environment, as well as people and community.

Jack So Chak-kwong, Chairman of the AA, said, “Sustainability is central to maintaining the competitiveness of Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), and indeed of Hong Kong. More specifically, the expansion of HKIA into a Three-runway System is essential to maintaining Hong Kong's pre-eminence as the financial, tourism and logistics hub for the region. As we have taken into account the views of our airport business partners, other key stakeholders and members of the public in the development of this report, we will continue to consult them in the next phase of our growth.”

Together with the airport community, the AA continues to contribute to the sustainable growth of HKIA, reinforcing the role of the airport as an important resource for the Hong Kong community:

• While pushing forward with expansion plans to increase capacity, the AA is also leveraging technology to enhance the airport’s efficiency and passenger experience. The establishment of the HKIA Technovation Board is a major initiative to drive systematic, long-term innovation and technology development at HKIA.   

• On the environmental front, HKIA remains on track towards achieving its airport-wide carbon intensity reduction target of 25% by the end of 2015, and is in the process of developing future carbon reduction targets with associated reduction strategies. 

• The AA continues to invest in the development and well-being of its staff, and has taken a strategic approach towards community investment.

This year’s sustainability report is prepared ‘in accordance’ with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines and the Airport Operators Sector Disclosures: the Core option.  It has also been independently verified by the Hong Kong Quality Assurance Agency, thereby providing greater transparency and accountability for the AA’s stakeholders.
