Our headquarter buildings, Cathay Pacific City and Dragonair House, are based at Chek Lap Kok, Hong Kong. They cover a total floor area of 193,000 m2 and mainly comprise offices, flight training centres and stores. Both premises are certified to the ISO14001 international environmental management standard. They are both equipped with a building management system; Cathay Pacific City also has automatic lighting and air-conditioning controls and motion sensors in conference rooms. In 2011, the total electricity consumption at Cathay Pacific City and Dragonair House was 35,774,314 kWH and 7,280,969 kWh respectively, representing an increase of 2.2% and 11.8% respectively. The main reasons for this increase are from the installation of an additional simulator and increased usage of existing ones, increased activities from training and recruitment, and higher demand on the facilities from the adjacent cargo terminal work site.

As part of making our buildings more energy efficient, we have commenced trialling different products for special and general lighting in our Flight Training Centre and offices. It is anticipated that up to 423,400 kWh of electricity will be saved once these changes have been implemented in 2012. We will also be commissioning a detailed energy audit. The findings of this audit will form the basis of refining our energy-efficiency improvement programme and assisting us in setting appropriate energy targets.

Together with a dozen other companies in Hong Kong, we signed up to the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) Building Manifesto for Energy Efficiency in Buildings whereby member companies pledge to improve the energy performance of their commercial buildings.
