Help Your Planet

Kids are far smarter than we given them credit. Possibly the best gift for your children is a Kelcroft audit, and help save the eco system problems. That is a story you can tell to your kids!

The above brief video clip shows hot steam exhaust near a bottle type cooling tower, that is a problem, heating up the cooling tower risks Legionella growth in the cooling tower and an explosive Legionella outbreak.

EMSD requires an independent auditor to inspect the cooling tower system every year.

The Public Opt for Carbon Neutrality by 2050

by John Herbert (@johnherbert)

The No. 1 recommendation from the Decarbonisation Public consultation, Hong Kong should be Nett Zero by 2050 (published in Hong Kong Council for Sustainable development). Here is the link to the report https://bit.ly/38D6tvL

Since Hong Kong buildings account for around 90% of electricity consumption and therefore more than 60% of the Greenhouse Gas inventory, it must be obvious that buildings will be the targetted to dramatically lower emissions, that means improving energy efficiency.

This target, its still only a pledge, is broadly aligned with the targets in other countries in the region.

It is easy to promote a slogan without actually understanding the practical underlying details, the devil is in the details.

How can Hong Kong meet 2050 target?
