Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) marked the latest phase in its "Green Terminal" environmental programme with a spectacular event entitled "Don't Wait, Act Now" on 3 August 2018.

Attended by authorities, customers, business partners, Hactl staff and others, the event emphasised the pressing need for society to reduce its collective impact on the environment.

The highlight of the event was an upcycled fashion show featuring Hactl staff, their children and pets on the runway. Complementing the show was an interactive display, environment-centric games and a video presentation on Hactl's new communal water dispensers. On top of installing and upgrading 78 new drinking water dispensers throughout SuperTerminal 1, Hactl handed out reusable water bottles and food containers with cutlery to its staff. Other waste reduction initiatives include discouraging the use of plastic straws, providing sustainably produced linen bags, and placing wooden recycling bins made from recycled cupboards and flooring throughout its terminal.

special video was produced for the event highlighting the urgency of environmental issues.
