We recognise the seriousness of climate change not only for its impact on our businesses but also on the environment.
Our response has been two-fold:
Climate Change Risk Assessment
We commissioned a comprehensive climate change risk assessment for our Hong Kong operations back in 2015. Since then, we have begun extending the risk assessment’s reach to our JVs in mainland China.
In Hong Kong, the assessment identified several potential areas of direct impact that could affect the stability of our transmission & operations or cause work delays. The Company’s existing measures were also examined with a view to establishing short, medium and long-term strategies. In addition, we have developed the Adverse Weather Preparedness Plan, and have incorporated potential climate change scenarios affecting the gas production and supply into our corporate emergency table-top exercise.
