First ICT Services Provider to Attain LOOP Gold Label for 5 Years In a Row
2014 Carbon Reduction Per Capita Hits a Record of 28%

Hong Kong — December 19, 2014 — Wharf T&T Limited is the first information and communications technology (ICT) services provider in Hong Kong to attain the Gold Label of the Low-carbon Office Operation Programme (LOOP) for 5 consecutive years since the launch of the programme.

Wharf T&T upholds strong corporate social responsibility and shares the same mission as LOOP to proactively reduce carbon emission towards sustainable development via the adoption of green best practices and enhanced staff engagement. Through participation in LOOP and extensive efforts in 4C – ‘Commit’, 'Calculate’, 'Cut’ and 'Communicate’, Wharf T&T successfully reduced carbon emission levels and demonstrated an encouraging result with an impressive 28% reduction in carbon emission per capita this year, far lower than the average annual carbon reduction rate per capita of verified LOOP offices.

With a strong commitment to environmental sustainability, Wharf T&T not only consistently cuts down electricity consumption, paper use and promotes green transport, but also adopts ICT to drive office automation and go green. Wharf T&T’s ICT services help build a green office, for example, the implementation of workflow automation and electronic billing system largely lessens paper consumption by 95%. ‘Cloud Voice’, a unified business communication service embracing scalable voice, video and mobility features, and video conferencing system also facilitate face-to-face meeting across different regions that minimise business travel and in turn contribute to substantial carbon emission reduction.

Organised by WWF-Hong Kong, LOOP Labelling scheme encourages, accelerates and recognises the efforts of Hong Kong companies and organisations in the creation and implementation of actions to combat climate change by reducing their office operation-related greenhouse gas emissions.
