Macau, 26 March 2014 – CESL Asia, a Macau company that distinguishes itself for developing local talent to provide world-class green service solutions, has been working with clients and partners to foster a greener society, introducing innovative and environmentally friendly solutions that help to minimize the environmental impact arising from businesses activities. For the company, to think out-of-the-box is critical to respond to the local market’s opportunities and because it's market leadership — even relevance — is only attainable if the company remains innovative in introducing higher value additions to their green services as well as if it reinforces its credentials with the increased investment in the development of it’s people to allow them to grow to their highest career potential while the company and Macau thrive.
Between 27 and 29 March, the company is going to be at the MIECF 2014 (Macau International Environmental Co-operation Forum & Exhibition) presenting its services, latest investments and strategies that have been promoting the sustainable development of Macau and surrounding communities. Following the tradition of inviting their business associates from outside of Macau to showcase at the MIECF their technologies and their joint cooperation with CESL Asia, Tongfang Environment Co., Ltd, the well reputed and one of the leading engineering, technology conglomerates from the PRC, will join CESL Asia to promote their environmental engineering solutions and proposals for Macau.
Mr. Antonio Trindade, the Chairman of the Board of CESL Asia, emphasizes; “when our company promotes its services as Green, sustainable solutions that are most suitable for our clients and for the development of Macau, we are not just promoting the latest technology nor is this merely fashionable business talk or a sort of marketing flag. Our services are designed to be a combination of the best suited technology offers from all over the World and the best local services capabilities — that we provide by local talented professionals with well developed service skills — that delivers the highest and best value solution to our clients in Macau, a resources challenged city with the largest, most intense and sophisticated market for leisure services”. Macau’s fierce competition for its limited resources, combined with a consensual outlook for continued economic growth and government policies advocating economic diversification and regional integration, “are urging us to develop new business solutions” and increase “our investment in further developing our people’s knowledge and their service skills in areas complementary to the core business of our clients in the dominant sectors of Public Services, leisure, gaming and retail”.
The Group has been providing architectural, engineering and planning consultancy, energy and technical services for both public and private sectors, managing the most critical environmental infrastructures in Macau. CESL Asia is currently responsible for the operation and maintenance of technical and energy facilities at the Macau International Airport, Galaxy Macau resort, City of Dreams Macau, Altira Macau, Wynn Macau and the Macau Peninsular Wastewater Treatment Plant, among many others.
The greenhouse gas emissions in Macau are mainly attributed to transportation and electricity consumption. The company estimates that, in the last 5 years the energy savings from the services provided by CESL Asia and implemented together with its clients, have eliminated around 17,300 tons of greenhouse gas emission, the approximate equivalent to planting 727,900 units of 5 meters high trees.
Last year CESL Asia was distinguished with the Excellence award on Environmental Performance, in the Business Awards 2013, for implementing practices, services and solutions which significantly reduce the environmental harm and foster resources saving. As a green company, CESL Asia has been introducing environmental friendly practices, such as the replacement of all the office lighting to LED lighting system and the installation of seven air purifiers, which led to the saving of more than 30% in CESL Asia’s office electricity consumption.
