Promotion of Energy Saving and Emission Reduction
Strengthening Environment Governance
In order to ensure the normal operation of pollution discharge and treatment facilities of various sources of pollution in the production and living areas, the Company continued to strengthen the control management on discharge of waste water (liquid), waste (smoke) gas, dust, noise (vibration), solid waste (fragments) and radioactive hazards, setting goals, developing measures and implementing responsibilities to ensure up-to-standard discharge. For the temporary land involved in the construction process, the Company strictly prepared land use and reclamation planning, with special attention to the environmental protection in densely populated areas, water source conservation areas, scenic areas, nature reserves and national key protected monuments. In addition, it carried out reclamation in accordance with the provisions after completion of the project to maximize the repair and use of the environment.
In 2018, CRTG actively carried out energy saving and emission reduction work, and standardized site construction of energy saving and emission reduction, promoting the application of new technologies, new processes and new equipment to improve energy efficiency while strictly controlling pollutant emissions, increased technological transformation and elimination of backward equipment, reduced emissions of waste gas and waste liquid, and made full use of waste residues and other waste.
CRTG performed enterprise environmental protection work according to laws and regulations, and established enterprise environmental protection management system.
In 2018, the Group actively introduced ISO14001: 2004 environmental management system standards to ensure that the environmental protection work is orderly and controllable. The Company insisted on conducting environmental impact evaluation according to law and fulfilling environmental approval procedures. Its environmental protection projects must be included in the overall project construction design to ensure that the relevant infrastructure and technological renovation projects are designed, constructed and put into operation simultaneously with the pollution prevention and control facilities and the main project.
CRTG has always regarded the protection of the natural environment as a major task of building a harmonious society and the harmony between man and nature is reflected in the construction process of each project. Before starting every project, the company always organized experts to carefully carry out and construct project environmental influence assessment, to fully demonstrate the environmental protection programs and to develop a detailed program of ecological protection. In construction processes, the company imported environmental protection supervision, increased input of ecologic protection, perfected continuously green procurement system, used energy saving equipments, improved craft process method and studied and used new environmentally friendly materials and other issues to reduce the influence to water, air, vegetation, living creature and protect creature's diversity.
Take Qinghai-Tibet railway as an example, the Group has taken extra precautions to protect the green land, animals, water, and has been particularly cautious when handling waste disposal, avoiding disrupting the fragile ecological environment on the Tibetan Plateau.
In respect of green lands protection, the Group restricted the moving area of the cars and construction machines so as to reduce the damage to the green lands to the animal. In addition, the Group has taken appropriate measures to enhance the recovery of green lands after the construction works.
Regarding to the protection of animals, the Group has set up specific passages for the wild animals which moves around the Tibetan Plateau. During the migration season of the Tibetan antelopes, the Group suspended the work tentatively to give way to those Tibetan antelopes.
Moreover, the Group has also taken extra caution when handling the construction waste so as not to pollute the land and water of the Tibetan Plateau, minimizing the environmental impact.
To achieve sustainable development, the Group will continue to take into account environmental consideration in its future development projects.
