Take a “Brake” Low Carbon Action – Corporate Green Driving Award Scheme

Reduce Vehicular Emissions and Save Fuel for Company Vehicles by participating in Take a “Brake” Low Carbon Action- Corporate Green Driving Award Scheme 2012 (register before August 31st)

The Take a “Brake” Low Carbon Action – Corporate Green Driving Award Scheme 2012 is a programme to help companies to reduce vehicular emissions and save fuel for their company vehicles.  Hong Kong’s roadside air quality is really poor but every company and individual can take actions to improve it for a better living environment.  

Below is a summary of the Scheme:

Participants in last year’s scheme had amazing success. Together they achieved an average of:
• 5.7% improvement in fuel efficiency and
• 10.7% reduction in fuel consumption

In terms of accumulated savings since the schemes inception in 2010, the participating organisations have:
• reduced their consumption of fuel by 67,700 litres per month,
• saved approximately HK$1,000,000 per month and
• achieved a monthly reduction of approximately 180 tonnes of CO2.

Imagine saving 31% of your monthly fuel expenses, that is what the top organisation achieved last year!
