How to get on track in transforming construction with global responsibility

Environmental good is always precious to preserve, but what does it mean in practice? As environmental impact assessment practitioners, market players still struggle with cost-effective, modernised, scientific approaches to achieving overall environmental, social, and governance (ESG) on the decarbonisation roadmap. We want to help the industry comprehend ESG implications and the latest digitalisation development reaching eco-goals.

Where do we start? Let’s begin with the market.

According to Future of Construction: A Global Forecast for Construction to 2030, global construction output is foreseen to rise by 6.6% in 2021. Government stimuli and residential demands will increase construction by 42% by 2030. What the sector growth implies is a greater risk of pollution and waste. The current 40% of the world’s global greenhouse gas emissions from the construction sector have covered a wider environment – the construction supply chain.

The roadmap is the decarbonisation journey requiring a lot of footsteps to achieve. Each footprint is associated with stakeholders’ enactment. Stakeholder groups in construction sector: The project sponsor, Contractors and subcontractors, Materials suppliers, Designers, Employees, The Authorities, Professional bodies, Communities, End users, etc.

Why is supply chain important in decarbonisation? In the construction sector, from raw materials to steelworks and concrete production, the suppliers may not be listed companies, but they are in the supply chain affecting ESG performance.

Each company has their carbon footprint. So have their suppliers. Let’s take building materials companies’ ESG risks as examples. S&P Global ratings unveil building materials companies consume substantial fuels for production, resulting in greenhouse emissions and other kinds of pollution.

What do we do to get on track in transforming businesses with global responsibility?

Law enforcement elevates the environmental consultancy industry – Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Ordinance. Environmental Licence Permit holder is liable for breaching, including all their suppliers’. There are emerging needs other than EIA, such as ESG reporting, roadmap, implementation plan.

Listed construction companies are now reporting on ESG matters. In 2016, the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (the HKEX”) raised a requirement for listed companies in Hong Kong to report their ESG performance. Supply chain management is one of the reporting areas.

Practitioners have a responsibility to advise their clients about ESG matters of their construction project. Because ESG ricks, including ESG supply chain risks have negative effects on 1) non-alignment with investor values, 2) operational risks, and 3) financial risks. (source: UNPRI.org)

It is also not a straight road towards the new direction. For construction sector, we observe numbers of challenges for them to reach comprehensive ESG targets. They are:

1) The project stakeholders have to handle a high volume of environmental data

2) It is time-consuming and labour-intensive for data collection and distribution

3) It is a pain point to identify the source

4) Data storage capacity is always a problem

5) It is difficult to communicate effectively to project sponsors and stakeholders

6) It is disputable to assign responsibility when handling the complaint

Can technology disruption help the challenges? Yes, technology can help a great deal. Technology advancement enables web-based, online, open system architecture. “Control Centre” Concept allows one-stop EM&A workflow management. Secured remote access, real-time data reporting & data analysis, and real-time event/action triggering & warning secure data integrity, which eventually leads to close-to-the-reality decision-making. Preventive maintenance echos with compliance management. Smart manufacturing streamlines sound facility management.

How do we tie the relation between data integrity and environmental protection

Ethics rule our behaviours. We see ethical marketing, ethical company governance, ethical issues at the workplace, and many more in the community. As an environmental consultant, what are our ethical practices to ensure things go the right way?

According to the National Association of Environmental Professionals, integrity is one of the keystones of being a professional environmentalist, from collecting environmental data, interpreting the data, presenting the data in reports, and engaging scientific methods in research, planning, design, management, and review of activities.

Why do we pick data to tie integrity and the environment? Data integrity represents the overall data accuracy, completeness, and consistency during its lifecycle. Data authenticity, entirety, and transparency matter when there is an unauthorised data alteration in the database. The inaccurate data shifts the decision makers’ thinking path, causing poor judgment.

As the environmental protection trend goes, infrastructure project proponents, including the builders, the operators are obliged to monitor and manage the environment where the facilities are sitting. The environmental ordinance has pre-set scopes and parameters as a benchmark to scrutinise the impacts. The facility nature defines which regulation the facility should comply with. In Hong Kong, we have diverse environmental ordinances to fulfil – air, water, waste, noise, hazardous chemicals, ozone layer, mercury and more. The environmentalists will scientifically conduct the measurement by collecting environmental data to analyse the facilities’ environmental performance and test whether they comply with the regulation.

That is how we connect the relationship between data integrity and environmental protection.

The need for integrated environmental monitoring boosts the use of data management platforms. The data management platforms incorporate the Internet-of-Things (IoT) sensory device to receive real-time environmental data and synchronise the data to the online platform through the Internet. The IT security secures the network from illegal penetration. The data is untouched by third-party through the control-centre monitoring – this is the main reason why the data remains a virtue.

One of the environmental IoT development is the noise compass. The three-dimensional Noise Compass can alert the project staff by selecting alarms for combinations of sound pressure levels
and incident angles. Thus, we can exclude sections of the measurement when the source location is outside the interest region. For example, when Leq is above 75 dB, and the sound is coming from the construction site, excluding the parts of a measurement contaminated by railway noise from the LDEN calculation.

The integrated environmental monitoring platform is the communication bridge between the IoT device and the project stakeholders. The system tracks the critical events. The project proponent applies rules to alert key stakeholders if over the limit. The platform can also be enhanced with visualisation. The visualisation further streamlines the environmental monitoring works with modules of site overview visualisation, CCTV Livestream, various ecological tracking and project management.

On the one hand, it manages spatial data, non-structured data, structure data, IoT data, CCTV streaming data, and analyse data. On the other hand, it aids the project stakeholders by viewing the project through the interactive chart and map, dual charts and maps comparison, 2D Drones Orthophoto, time-varied Animation, geo-tag information input and Photo gallery. Customised dashboard and back-end analysis is a plus to the users to diagnose the data for reporting. None of the above environmental visualisations and reports would be correctly built without proper data import.

ANewR Consulting Limited is exhilarated to be commissioned to design, develop, and maintain a one-stop 3D visualisation platform for IWMF, Hong Kong’s flagship waste management facilities – The Integrated Waste Management Facilities. The Integrated Waste Management Facilities (IWMF), the municipal waste incineration plant, is located at Shek Kwu Chau. IWMF will be built on an artificial island, which means reclamation is inevitable. Besides the terrestrial ecology of Shek Kwu Chau, Shek Kwu Chau is inhabited by about 300 rehabilitators and staff of the Society for the Aid and Rehabilitation of Drug Addicts (SARDA). Comprehensive environmental monitoring is imperative for the project’s hit without adversely impacting the ecology and the inhabitants. And, this is why we encourage integrated environmental monitoring practice.

What do we do for our client in the land contamination assessment

At the beginning of 2021, BBC News reported that the oil giant was sued for polluting the community. The news illustrates the corporate effort in maintaining good health in the operating area concerning its reputation. The neglect would cause the lawsuit and cost penalty for the improper supply chain management. It is wrong to think local community and regulations are not under the corporate scope. Apart from achieving Sustainable Development Goals and avoiding penalties, health and safety are other critical reasons to pre-assess the land condition before the development.

Redeveloping a place is typical worldwide. New construction taking up the used ground for a new purpose revitalises the land – from contaminated land to sustainable urban development. In the US, the determining factors are founded on the release volume, total population exposed, proximity or impact to groundwater aquifers, drinking water wells contaminated, source water protection areas, unique exposure pathways, or environmental justice communities.

Because of the land limitation, urban residential redevelopment is the most cases in Hong Kong. We have regulations assessing the land for reuse, changing the land use, especially from industrial to residential use. For business continuity, another spot required by law for regular checkups is the petrol filling station. Petroleum leakage and seeping would likely cause pollution, impacting the local ecosystem significantly.

Environmental consultants support the clients in site appraisal, investigation, and remediation suggestions in the land contamination assessment. Taking petrol filling station as an example, the checkups of leaks from pipework, tanks and offset fill pipes, the operations such as spills during customer refuelling, filling underground storage tanks and overfilling portable containers are the conceivable reason for land contamination. You can picture how it was operated underlies the potential adverse impact on the future redevelopments.

Key Chemicals of Concern (COCs) are the parameters that environmental consultants would look at from the laboratory analytical results. The environmental consultants interpret the results for the clients, let them understand the issue, recommend remediation action, evaluate remediation alternatives, design and operation of remediation, implement and monitor the programme. In this case, independent consultants are essential to ensure the authenticity and integrity of the reports.

Community engagement

It is fair to say a corporate serves society because the products and services are created to facilitate another business’s production and operation to output something to serve the community at last.

Your business has impacts on the community’s standard of living and quality of life. The way to sustain the company is to include the environment and society in the context.

How to work on community engagement?

First, what are your community initiatives? You may mainly focus on community health or particular community groups such as youth or the environment. You will then be able to develop programs targeting the communities you want to serve.

Your community engagement program can include pet projects, philanthropy, propaganda, and partnering. When considering the type of engagement you want to enforce, you may take two benefits into account – benefits to society and services to the business.

Pet project is a personal-goal pursued activity that may not have the general acceptance as necessary or essential. As it is not community-focus, the pet project is regarded as the least beneficial to society and the business.

Philanthropy has a clear target to reach to the community, but the business goodwill may not be enhanced without the actual involvement. Propaganda is a way to publicly promote the point of view; the act may not cause a substantial contribution to society.

A partnership is beyond philanthropy and propaganda, constituting high levels of benefits to society and business. Each party taps into the resources and expertise to look for an inventive solution to the community’s challenges.

Focus your efforts, develop a knowledge of the issues and benefits, and look for suitable allies to practice your community commitment.

Equal opportunity

Are you socially inclusive? United Nations has defined social inclusion as “the process of improving the terms of participation in society, particularly for people who are disadvantaged, through enhancing opportunities, access to resources, voice and respect for rights.”

Who are the disadvantaged groups? Disadvantaged groups are “groups of persons that experience a higher risk of poverty, social exclusion, discrimination, and violence than the general population,” according to the European Institute for Gender Equality.

Considering the Sustainability Development Goals of No Poverty, Quality Education, Gender Equality, Decent Work, and Economic Growth, as well as Reduced Inequalities, we can deduce numbers of ways to reach equal opportunity. At the functional level, the International Labour Organisation suggests starting at the workplace.

Whereas by law in Hong Kong, we have Anti-Discrimination Ordinances, including race discrimination, disability discrimination, sex discrimination, and family status discrimination. Equal Opportunities Commission has issued “Equal Opportunities in Employment: Good Management Practices” to guide corporate organisations beyond compliance.

Corporate governance principles have critical leadership in the organisation. Apart from the economic benefits from a diverse workforce, inclusion has a stunning effect on society – more excellent social stability and public support for economic development, named by the International Labour Organisation. Review the practices when working on corporate social responsibility planning to ensure your organisation is working towards the same target, to be an authentic corporate social responsibility practitioner.

So, have no-bias in mind, spread the code of conduct, put the principle in force. By obeying the law and practice beyond compliance, your good corporate governance contributes to social inclusion by non-discrimination.

Consumer engagement

We can engage consumers through various communications channels, such as newsletters, online platforms, customer centres, hotlines, satisfaction surveys. You may set up a consumer focus group to proactively reach out to the consumers to know their needs.
While consumer engagement can be practical and emotional, you will need to do more than a general practice as a corporate.

In the age of social media, you and your consumers are more aware of every environmental and social news. Information accuracy is easy to be tested. Put effort into making sure your marketing materials are correct and do not bias.

In your country, there may be government regulations and industry guidelines to comply with and follow. Ensure your materials are accessible for all – the local people, ethnic minorities, the disabled, and disadvantaged groups.

Another subject of broad and current interest is personal data privacy. If your business service deals with the general public, you will necessitate being careful with personal data handling.

Data leakage can be a breach because of work ethic; it can be cybersecurity control and management. Internally, a corporate policy instructs how your staff should treat the consumers’ data.

It would be best to let your team realise mishandling data and unaware of cybersecurity can lead to a crime.

To minimise the chance of sensitive data leakage, to follow the Personal Data Privacy Ordinance, you should isolate sensitive data such as identity card numbers of consumers from the system.

Or you should not collect sensitive data if the data is not critical information to proceed with the transaction. Assign staff-in-charge to oversee the control and when incidents occur, contact the responsible authority.

In Hong Kong, the authority is the Hong Kong Police Force’s Cyber Security Centre.

On the front line, your customer service staff is a channel conveying your corporate service and products to the consumers.

John Tschohl, the service strategist, has proposed size core customer service elements in the customer service staff’s perspective.

They are: Feel good about yourself. Practice habits of courtesy, Providing caring communications both verbally and non-verbally. Perform. Listen to the customer. Learn about your products and services.

Last but not least, your products and services are of excellent importance component in your business. Supply affordable and reliable products and services with all the relevant compliance such as health and safety and environmental regulation: design products and services to help your consumers and the society.

What is a sustainable landfill design?

A landfill, a system of waste disposal, is hardly connected with enchanting terminology. Landfill expansion is not an ideal option for the community. We still have to live with it since our garbage is produced daily. The gatekeeper is how we manage the landfill in an environmental-friendly way.

SENT landfill is one of the landfills operating under sustainable design (https://www.epd.gov.hk/epd/english/environmentinhk/waste/prob_solutions/msw_sent.html)

First, the Bottom Liner System is applied to avoid underground water contamination. The wanted liner material is polyethylene (HDPE), which has high density, is strong, resistant to most chemicals, and impervious to water.

The lining system is multi-layered. In the SENT landfill of HKSAR, which collects construction waste only, the layers consist of a non-woven geotextile cushion layer, textured HDPE primary liner, composite bentonite matting, textured HDPE secondary liner, and geocomposite groundwater drainage layer. The system will also collect landfill gas and leachate from obstructing the transfer from landfills to the environment.

Second, it is the leachate collection system. Leachate is the contaminated liquid caused by rainfall or surface water blending with waste and its decomposition products. The pipe network at the sump gathers leachate, which will be pumped to the biological treatment plant for treatment. Without the leachate collection system, leachate will seep underground. Leachate gathering is a critical step to avoid waste polluting the ground.

The biological treatment plant will initially release the ammonia content in the leachate. Pollutants in the leachate will be further cleared through bacteria consumption. The legal discharge depends on the chemical oxygen demand (COD) and biological oxygen demand (BOD).

Why are COD and BOD important to the discharge standards? They are vital measurements for the amount of oxygen that is required to break down pollutants in water. A good BOD and COD levels mean not much organic waste and oxidisable organic material presenting in the water. If the levels are high, the reduction of dissolved oxygen levels will eventually lead to anaerobic situations, which is harmful to higher aquatic life forms.

Photo above: Increasing demand of green school (https://anewrhk.files.wordpress.com/2018/09/e71-hk-a_vtc-tsing-yi_v1.pdf)

Every 100 parts per million rise in CO2 drives to one-half day per year absent in the UK.

Finnish students have achieved 4% more correct answers in a maths test when exposed to a thermally comfortable learning environment.

The noise level increased by 10 dB, the French students will score 5.5 points less.

Having our youths study at the optimal lighting, indoor air quality, thermal comfort, and acoustics conditions will boost their education excellency; the meaning behind is to reduce the energy used and carbon emission – this is the goal of having a green building.

To participate in the green building action, what you need to comprehend is:

  • Green construction practices – minimising the use of resources, energy, and waste production, and selecting green building materials;
  • Professional environmental measurements, including noise, dust, indoor air quality, indoor acoustics, and vibration;
  • What to do with submitting all necessary information, reports, and documents to the Architect, Engineer, and Project professionals’ satisfaction;
  • What relevant green building credits you acquire to ultimately achieved a higher environmental star standard and enhance its comfortability for potential users.

Join the green school action.
