Building a more sustainable future for our children and creating a more eco-friendly campus are two of our most cherished aims at City University of Hong Kong (CityU). That’s why the University has included an electric sedan in our fleet of vehicles, a 5-seater Nissan Leaf that produces zero roadside carbon emissions.
Incorporating the car into the day-to-day running of the University aligns with our comprehensive package of green initiatives. In the past few years, CityU has launched aggressive campus-wide campaigns to reduce food waste, cut electricity consumption and carbon emissions, implement energy-saving lighting, install energy-efficient heating technology in the student residences and recycle grey water as well as participate in territory-wide movements such as WWF Earth Hour 2010 and “Hong Kong No Air-con Night”.
In addition, students at CityU can choose from a range of world-class programmes and Gateway Education courses that focus on sustainability from inter-disciplinary perspectives ranging from policy and governance to enhanced technologies for capturing solar power.
CityU acknowledges the urgency of the problems facing the world due to energy issues and climate change and is committed to contribute to a greener future.
