Logan group is committed to becoming a leading green property developer in China. In addition to providing its customers with a highly premier and comfortable living environment, the Group strives to protect the environment. We vigorously apply the latest environmental technologies and constantly improve our production models to minimize the environmental impacts brought by its business operations.
Construction works during the property development unavoidably generate emissions. During the Year, we reported increases in air emissions, sewage, greenhouse gas, and waste, all of which were mainly attributable to the continuing growth in our construction business with a two-fold increase in the construction projects as compared with last year. However, we are committed to mitigating our environmental impacts by adopting the following stringent control measures and strive to promote a sustainable development.
In compliance with the relevant laws and regulations on environmental protection formulated by national, provincial and municipal governments of the People’s Republic of China, including the Environmental Protection Law of the People’s Republic of China (中華人民共和國環境保護法), Law of the People’s Republic of China on the Prevention and Control of Water Pollution (中華人民共和國水污染防治法), Law of the People’s Republic of China on the Prevention and Control of Atmospheric Pollution (中華人民共和國大氣污染防治法), Law of People’s Republic of China on the Prevention and Control of Environmental Pollution by Solid Wastes (中華人民共和國固體廢物污染環境防治法) and Measures for Public Participation in Environmental Impact Assessment (環境影響評價公眾參與辦法), the Group ensures that it strikes a balance between its development and environmental protection in order to create a healthy and comfortable living environment for the next generation.
Environmental impact of construction | Biodiversity
We conduct environmental impact assessments for construction projects to carry out appropriate conservation and planning work. We continue to adopt prefabricated building technology to reduce the pollution caused by the construction process to the construction site and the surrounding environment.
Green building | Pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions | Climate change
In 2019, we continued to increase the proportion of green buildings, built sponge cities, and adopted a variety of designs for environmental protection,energy saving and emission reduction, all of which facilitate us to adapt toclimate change. There are 103 projects with green design in our land reserves. In the future, we will obtain more green certifications for projects.
We are committed to building green cities, and we have added a large number of green building technologies and designs to our buildings. In the future, we will seek to obtain environmental certification for more buildings and improve our brand awareness. [We aim to achieve 100% national or provincial 1-star level or above regarding green buildings for new residential buildings by 2025 / Our mission is to apply green building standards that 100% comply with national or provincial 1-star level or above into our new residential buildings by 2025.]
Noise pollution | Waste disposal and management
We pay attention to the possible noise and waste that may arise from construction projects, and implement strict measures to regulate related emissions, including reviewing current site management measures, strengthening accountability, conducting training and seminars, etc.
Water use | Energy use
We cherish and make good use of resources during our operations. The intensity of energy and water consumption in 2019 recorded a decrease as compared to last year and the intensity of greenhouse gas emissions decreased by 13% as compared to last year. In the future, we will continue to measure resource usage and apply renewable energy.
2019 / Our footprint in environmental protection：
Logan Property is a vital contributor to the construction of green city over the years and is committed to achieving perfect integration of green technology with society, environment, and humanities. During the Year, we had 103 green design projects in the Company's land bank, including 15 projects with green building design certifications and 4.1 million square meters with green star certification.
Sponge city is a new concept of rain flood management for modern cities, meaning that cities are as elastic as sponges and can absorb, store, and purify rainwater. When necessary, the stored water sources will be discharged and used, which helps adapting to environmental changes and respond to natural disasters caused by rain. We actively promote the design concept of “sponge city” and implement it in the Acesite Park Project in Shenzhen so as to provide a better sustainable living experience for customers.
We are committed to delivering environmental buildings, and incorporating various environmental and energy-saving elements to building planning and designs to create healthy and comfortable human habitation. The green building design adopted by certain projects complies with national and provincial green building evaluation standards.
We stress great importance to the impacts of the real estate business on the surrounding environment and natural resources. Under the development principle of green production, we consider environmental protection in every process of its production chain and seeks to achieve the ultimate purposes, including energy conservation, water saving, material efficiency, emissions reduction, and harmonious coexistence with the environment.
In the future, the Group will continue to introduce more prefabricated buildings and minimize environmental impacts from the construction process. projects include: Shenzhen Qianhai Project , Shenzhen Acesite Park,etc
Aﬀordable residential properties
Logan Group actively participates in the construction of urban talent resettlement housing, providing a livable urban environment and helping cities attract industrial talents. Specific projects include: Jiangnan Courtyard in Nanning, Glory Lake in Foshan, etc.
The Group is committed to developing with the cities it is based in and building beautiful homes. With this in mind, Logan Group actively participates in urban renewal projects.
