Hactl Wins Award for Environmental Excellence
Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) has received the Transport and Logistics – Silver Award at the 2014 Hong Kong Awards for Environmental Excellence (HKAEE). It is the first time the company has entered this awards competition.

Hactl supported its submission with data-based evidence of its achievements to date.
Hactl Executive Director, Mr. Kenneth Chan, received the award trophy at a grand presentation ceremony held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, in the presence of Mr. C. Y. Leung, the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Mr. Wong Kam-sing, the Secretary for the Environment, Mr. Lam Chiu-ying, the Chairman of the Environmental Campaign Committee and Professor Joseph J Y Sung, Chairman of Final Adjudicating Panel of 2014 HKAEE. The event also marked the launch of the 2015 HKAEE programme.
Says Mr. Chan, “It is very pleasing for Hactl to receive the Transport and Logistics – Silver Award in the 2014 HKAEE at the first attempt, in recognition of our constant efforts to minimize the environmental impact of our business. This success inspires us to further improve our environmental credentials, and so enable our customers to enjoy a world-class green air cargo terminal.”
