Ocean Park hits emission targetsLocal | Sophie Hui 5 Jul 2019
Ocean Park achieved its 10-year carbon reduction targets four years ahead of schedule in the last fiscal year.
The carbon reduction targets were set in 2012, where it aimed to reduce absolute carbon emissions by 10 percent before 2021/22.
"Ocean Park strives to achieve sustainable development. Through the park's industry-leading carbon footprint reduction plan, we are committed to optimizing energy efficiency of all facilities to achieve energy savings," Ocean Park chief executive Matthias Li Sing-chung said.
"The park will continue to reduce its carbon footprint through various initiatives and create a world-class, eco-friendly theme park experience."
The park has also installed its first solar power system on the rooftop of Polar Adventure, a wintry-themed attraction with Arctic and Antarctic animals.
The park was also the first organization to participate in Hong Kong Electric's Feed-in Tariff Scheme in August.
It spent HK$3 million installing solar panel systems at Polar Adventure.
The park is developing the second phase of the solar power system and will start construction in the fourth quarter this year. It plans to complete construction by the end of next year.
