HONG KONG, Dec. 18, 2013 – Du Pont Apollo Ltd. (DuPont Apollo) was recently granted an award during the CarbonSmart Forum cum Partner Commendation Ceremony in Hong Kong, in appreciation of its dedication to become a low carbon commitment partner and its efforts in support of the carbon audit pilot fund.
“For more than 200 years, DuPont has adhered to a strong set of core values, including environmental stewardship,” said Sharon Wong, head of product line management– DuPont Apollo. “We aim to protect the environment and strengthen our businesses by making environmental issues an integral part of all business activities, and we are honored to be recognized for our commitment and collaboration with the CarbonSmart initiative.”
The CarbonSmart Program (the Program) is a 2.5-year Government-funded program organized by the Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC) in collaboration with the Federation of Hong Kong Industries (FHKI), Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce (HKGCC) and Business Environment Council (BEC).
The Program aims to encourage and sustain a concerted industry effort on carbon auditing and reduction to shape a low carbon future, as well as facilitate the development of related environmental industries. Under the campaign banner of CarbonSmart, the campaign aims to identify around 200 companies to become Hong Kong's showcase low carbon businesses.
DuPont Apollo consistently works to reduce carbon emissions by making environmental issues an integral part of all business activities, and by aligning its actions with public expectations. For example, air handling systems are appropriately managed to increase energy efficiency, and the 1.33 megawatt roof-top solar installation at its manufacturing site at Shenzhen offsets 1480 tons of carbon dioxide annually.
