Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) has won the ‘Sustainability Award’ at the virtual Pride of Ground Handling Awards.
Sustainability was a new award category included this year. Judges sought evidence of quality, teamwork, safety policies and passion for ground handling, when examining the entries.
Hactl’s award submission focused on its ‘Sustainability Matrix’ – which spans decarbonisation, energy, waste, health and safety, education, livelihood and community.
Hactl’s chief executive Wilson Kwong said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have won this award in recognition of our efforts and investment in sustainability.
“For us, sustainability is not an option but an imperative. We have one fragile planet, and we must try to undo the damage which has already been done. Time is not on our side, which is why we pursued our Green Terminal programme relentlessly, even while the pandemic raged around us.
“Hactl is already embarked on its sustainability journey, and this award will motivate our team to become even more engaged, and to continue our mission.”
