[1] Offices in QGO and APB Centre represent a majority of total ArchSD office space.
[2] Territory wide default GHG emission factors (0.7) were used based on the Guidelines to Account for and Report on Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Removals for buildings (Commercial, Residential or Institutional Purpose) in Hong Kong issued by the Environmental Protection Department, HKSAR in February 2010.
[3] The data obtained from 2007 onwards take Building Energy Code (BEC) 2007 as the baseline, energy efficient features refer to air-conditioning installations, lighting installations, hot water installations, lift & escalator installations, building energy management system and renewable energy technologies.
[4] In 2010, 2 large-scale completed projects including a Government Departmental Headquarters and a Hospital Extension Block contributed to the major increase. In 2011, the Tamer Development Project was completed and contributed to most of the energy saving. In 2012, the New CAD Headquarters and North Lantau Hospital Phase 1 contributed to most of the energy saving.
[5] The conversion of the carbon emissions avoided to the number of tree planted is calculated by the Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

[7] APB Centre was committed to the EPD's Source Separation Programme of Commercial and Industrial Waste for classifying daily recyclable wastes including waste paper, aluminum cans & plastic bottles. Our staff are well aware on this housekeeping arrangement.
[8] APB Centre joined the Source Separation Programme of Commercial and Industrial Waste in March 2009. The cleaners are requested to report the volume of the collected recycled items to our General Registry. The significant increase in the figure was that we enhanced our control to record the recycled items from monthly basis to a weekly basis and the figure would be reported to EPD.
