WSD's "Quality Water Recognition Scheme for Buildings" certificates awarded to 68 Sino managed projects

Sino Property Services (SPS) has been a keen supporter of the Water Supplies Department"s "Quality Water Recognition Scheme for Buildings" since 2002. SPS"s continuous efforts to monitor the water quality systems of its buildings have led to 68 projects being awarded a total of 152 certificates (including 4 Gold, 42 Silver and 21 Blue) by the WSD this year.

"We always put our customers" safety first. Through integrated maintenance schedules and adhering to strict guidelines at our managed projects, we ensure the best quality water is supplied to our customers. Furthermore, water tanks are cleaned once every three months, plumbing systems are monitored on a monthly basis and pipes are inspected and maintained in good condition at all times." said Mr. Gordon Wu, General Manager of Sino Property Services.

SPS accommodates government environmental policy by introducing green elements into property management. Forty-six Sino projects applied for the Environment Bureau"s newly launched guidelines for carbon auditing. This initiative calculates the amount of greenhouse gas an operation generates, which enables an appropriate carbon reduction programme to be developed for a property.

Moreover, 100 Sino Property Services managers have graduated from the Sino Green Academy as Green Ambassadors qualified to promote green management and environmental awareness throughout 180 Sino managed properties. In addition, Sino has been organizing recycling campaigns in collaboration with different green groups. Used books, TVs, computers and mooncake boxes are donated to World Vision, St James" Settlement, Caritas and Christian Action respectively to encourage residents to join the efforts to conserve our environment.
