Updated: Feb 29

As an environmental issue of global concern, various industries are striving to find different ways to reduce energy consumption. As a highly developed city, Hong Kong is also facing multiple challenges in environment and sustainable development. In the long-term climate action plan "Hong Kong's Climate Action Plan 2050" formulated by the Hong Kong government, setting out the vision of "Zero-carbon Emissions· Liveable City·Sustainable Development", and outlining the strategies and targets for combating climate change and achieving carbon neutrality.

As part of the construction industry or a construction management team, there is a natural need to contribute. If you want to replace other expensive energy-saving retrofit projects with low-cost, convenient, and green building materials, use 3M ™ sun protection glass film with high lighting and thermal insulation performance to easily achieve sustainable development goals.

The Hong Kong government and all walks of life have adopted a series of measures, including enacting environmental laws and regulations, promoting energy efficiency, providing environmental protection education and raising awareness, etc. All walks of life have also actively participated in environmental protection actions to promote sustainable development practices and innovations.

The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) of Hong Kong recently conducted a performance experiment 3M Sun Control and Daylight Redirecting Window Films at the headquarters building in Kowloon Bay to test the efficacy of the UV protection and heat insulation glass film. The maximum test temperature can be reduced by 5~7°C, A highly transparent multi-optical layer & non-metallic sun control window film with good solar heat insulation and, high blocking rate of Ultraviolet and Infrared radiation properties.; Maintain high transmittance and high heat reflectivity without additional power supply or maintenance management, which can effectively reduce indoor temperature and reduce air-conditioning costs and energy consumption. By adding green building materials, carbon reduction targets are achieved.
