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.”
Sustainability management structure
Within AAHK, sustainability is managed through different entities within the organisation. The current management structure is illustrated in the diagram below.
Business Development Committee
The Business Development Committee has the mandate to oversee AAHK’s sustainability, as stated in its Terms of Reference.
Senior management level
Executive Director, Engineering & Technology
The Executive Director, Engineering & Technology (EDET), has the 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.
Sustainability Working Group
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 2018/19 Annual Report.
AAHK is responsible for the operation and development of HKIA. The delivery of many services related to airport’s operational functions are outsourced to franchisees, tenants and Government departments. We have therefore adopted a three-pronged approach to the overall sustainability management of HKIA. The principles of ‘Control, Guide and Influence’ reflect the different levels of control we exercise over the various aspects of airport operation.
