Launched by the Environment Bureau, the "Charter on External Lighting" invites owners of and responsible persons for external lighting installations to switch off lighting installations of decorative, promotional or advertising purposes which affect the outdoor environment during the preset time (i.e. 11 p.m. or midnight to 7 a.m. on the following day). It is hoped that the Charter will help to minimize light nuisance and energy wastage progressively.
Our school has signed this Charter to show our support and has pledged to switch off non-essential external lighting installations on campus during the preset times.
Our school was presented with the Platinum Award in recognition of our compliance with the switch-off requirements.
