To step up our efforts in energy conservation and sustainability and to raise awareness on eco-friendliness, we are going to carry out “HSMC Quarterly Hour” scheduled for March*, June, October* and December every year. In these 60 minutes, we will reduce our carbon footprint by minimising unnecessary energy consumption.
*Coincide with WWF's "Earth Hour" and Green Sense's "No Air-Con Night" respectively
This time, the College pledges to take part in Green Sense’s “No Air-Con Night” alongside “HSMC Quarterly Hour” . We ask for your kind support to consider turning off air-con at home and bedroom.
