To mitigate climate change risk exposure, Intertek Hong Kong joined forces with World Wildlife Fund Hong Kong (WWF-Hong Kong) in organizing one-day interactive workshop titled, “Sustaining Your Business in a Carbon-constrained Economy,” on 22 October 2013. The workshop was funded by the Sustainable Development Fund of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and supported by renowned organizations, to bring together businesses, operations and technical leaders in the manufacturing industry to explore climate change impacts and sustainable business growth opportunities in a carbon-constrained economy.

The objective of this workshop is to increase participants’ concerns in reducing their manufacturing facilities’ carbon emissions and develop environmental and social governance guidelines, also equip them with best practices in greenhouse gas management by providing them with a carbon accounting and labelling system. This not only helps the participants improve their energy efficiency, but also helps them save money in the long run and makes their corporate image more climate-friendly.

Tommy Cheung, Assistant Technical supervisor of Intertek Hong Kong, presented on “How to Enhance the Energy Efficiency of the Manufacturers’ Facilities,” participants provided positive feedback about the presentation, which generated interactive discussions on how to reduce carbon emissions and greenhouse gas management practices.
