The physical risks of the Group caused by climate change mainly include extreme weather events such as heavy rains, thunderstorms, and strong winds. Therefore, the Group formulated special emergency response procedures for severe weather in summer. Once we receive an alert on the weather, the Group will organize and arrange various departments to carry out disaster prevention and emergency measures to ensure employees’ safety.
In order to control the transition risks posed by climate change to the Group such as policies, laws, and regulations, the Group will closely monitor the national policies and market updates, take related response actions.
The Group has been conducting regular verification and registration of carbon emissions in strict accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Emission Accounting Methodology and Reporting Guidelines for Enterprises-Power Generation Facilities, the Measures for the Administration of Carbon Emissions Trading (Trial) and other related regulations. Meanwhile, we paid close attention to market changes and explored the application and development of clean energy.
With the proposal of China’s 14th five-year plan and the goals of “carbon peak” and “carbon neutral”, the demands of new energy and energy-saving and emission reduction have continuously grown, and the eco-friendly concepts have gradually gained its attention in the construction and engineering industry.
The Far East (Zhuhai) has a trial run of BIPV model on the top of the existing staff canteen in Far East (Zhuhai) aand adopts both BIPV photovoltaic roof system and facade system to develop the BIPV technology. The project was successfully completed and commenced operation, It is estimated to satisfy the energy consumption required for the indoor air-conditioning and the lighting requirement.
The photovoltaic roof covers an area of 300 square meters and the facade photovoltaic panel covers an area of 45 square meters. New materials such as imitation stone, imitation aluminum plate, imitation wood grain and imitation brick and stone grain are selected, enhancing the appearance of the building.
In addition to the research and development of standard BIPV systems suitable for different locations such as facade, roofs and railings, the Group is also committed to the research and development of BIPV system which is suitable for the photovoltaic-related renovation of old buildings. Meanwhile, the Group also carries out in-depth research and development of non-glass photovoltaic modules, breaks through the traditional all glass design option, and replaces the glass backsheet with aluminium veneer, aluminium honeycomb plate, galvanized plate and other materials, so as to improve the strength of photovoltaic modules and reduce the weight. At the same time, we also explore the replacement of glass panels with other transparent materials to provide more diversified facade outlook of BIPV.
Our Group actively conducts R&D and application of the next-generation facade with solar power generation, color-changing, fireproof, and respiratory features, devoting to adapt to the concept of environmental protection and demands from emerging markets.
The Group possess a valid passive curtain wall certification for Hong Kong and North America. This certification is the first passive building certification for unit glass curtain wall in North America and even the entire world, indicating that our high-thermal performance envelope structure, high air tightness, and efficient heat recovery system are internationally recognized of the ability for achieve ultra-low energy consumption curtain wall design.Gamma North America Received Passive Curtain Wall Certification
The Group boasts mature technologies in respiratory double-skin facade. Respiratory facade introduces an internal circulation and ventilation system, which improves a building’s overall thermal performance by controlling the flow direction and flow of the wind. It prevents curtain wall from frosting on cold days and facilitates heat dissipation in high temperature, thereby reducing energy demand and improving energy efficiency.Respiratory Double-skin Facade in the Hong Kong Academy of Sciences Project
