Much more recycled plastic for export shipments

As the first cargo terminal in Hong Kong, Cathay Cargo Terminal is introducing 50% recycled plastic cargo cover sheets for all export cargo shipments built up within its terminal, increasing from its current specifications of no less than 30% recycled content. A new material provided by the company’s supplier will be rolled out in the terminal from next month, after extensive testing in 2023.


Cathay subsidiaries head of sustainable development Michelle Fok: "The circular economy is an important concept to reduce waste and prolong product lifecycles. Our cargo terminal has implemented circularity in cargo plastic sheets since 2017 and is already breaking down and recycling 100% of plastic sheets from import cargo shipments." (ah)
