Water

We are continuously looking for both conventional and innovative ways of conserving water. Due to various initiatives taken by the Group companies, we have been able to reduce water consumption over the years. Potable water consumed at Cathay Pacific City and Dragonair House was 18,406 m3 and 12,338 m3 in 2011 respectively. This represents an overall reduction of 8% over 2010 consumption.

One of our more water-intensive operations, Vogue Laundry, consumed 302,243 m3 of water in 2011, representing a 4.9% reduction from its 2010 level. This is equivalent to 10.06 litres per kg of linen washed (down 8.5% from 10.99 litres per kg in 2010). CPCS has reduced water use by 0.75% from 2010 to 2011.

In 2011, water used for aircraft washing was 98,583 m3, resulting in 8% reduction from 2010.
