Airport Authority Releases Sustainability Report 2017/18

The Airport Authority (AA) released its Sustainability Report 2017/18. The report covers the AA’s sustainability performance in the fiscal year ending 31 March 2018 across four key pillars: "Our People", "World-class Gateway", "Our Future Airport" and "HK People’s Airport".

The report features 10 interviews with AA staff, demonstrating how sustainability has been integrated into the AA's business and operation. Highlights of the AA's sustainability initiatives in the reporting year include:

  • The AA continues to apply innovative technologies to strengthen the safety and security of HKIA, and enhance passenger experience, including the introduction of a Virtual Aircraft Loading Bridge Operation training facility and smart luggage tag MyTAG.
  • Phase 1 of the Ground Services Equipment Pooling Scheme was implemented at the Midfield Apron to enhance the efficiency in aircraft ramp handling process and reduce emissions.
  • The AA rolled out an ISO 14001 environmental management system to drive continuous environmental improvement.
  • The EXTRA MILE project with three pilot programmes were launched in early 2018, bringing the AA, business partners and NGOs together to address social issues by creating employment and promoting upward social mobility while driving the development of HKIA and the society.
