Sino Property Services clinches 168 WSD "Quality Water Recognition Scheme for Buildings" certificates

Sino Property Services has been a keen supporter of the Water Supplies Department's "Quality Water Recognition Scheme for Buildings" since 2002. This year, its continuous effort in monitoring water quality has once again gained recognition from WSD, leading to 168 certificates crediting 77 properties under the scheme.

Mr Kwan Chi Wah, General Manager of Sino Property Services said, "Our customers' health always come first. Through integrated maintenance schedules and adhering to strict guidelines at our managed properties, 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. We are happy to have obtained more certificates this year, as recognition of our continuous effort in this area."

Apart from monitoring water quality, SPS is concerned about water conservation. A rain water collection system has been installed in Skyline Tower to store and filter rain water for plant watering. The tower reuses bleed-off water from the cooling system for flushing purposes while shower taps are installed to reduce water wastage.

SPS also spares no effort to promote green education, the Sino Green Academy trained up 100 property managers as Green Ambassadors to promote green management and environmental awareness. Its green initiatives also reach out to schools. In the Sino Green Academy – Student Green Ambassador programme, the company’s Green Ambassadors mentored 60 students to conduct carbon audits at Sino Group properties and prepare proposals for further improvements to communicate that green is everyone's business.
