Carbon Care Asia Limited (CCA) is pleased to support K11 in presenting Hong Kong’s first and unique “carbon neutral” X’mas Arts Exhibition organized by K11. “Supernova X’mas – Luminastic“ is a very special arts exhibition for this Christmas organized by the K11 Mall in response to the United Nations’ proclamation of 2015 as the “International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies”. Just as the aim of the United Nations is to raise global awareness on how light-based sciences promote sustainable development and provide solutions to global challenges in energy, education, agriculture and health, K11 also hopes to educate the public through this Christmas exhibition of visual and installation arts for a full appreciation of the possibilities of light and light-based technologies.

To give our professional support to this special and meaningful exhibition, CCA has conducted carbon auditing and provided carbon credits to offset the unavoidable carbon emissions of the event. The organizer K11 has chosen to purchase carbon credits from the afforestation and reforestation project in Northwest Sichuan, China, in a bid to support biodiversity and the mitigation of climate change impacts. A total of 78 tonnes of carbon emissions have been offset as a result, which are equivalent to the amount of CO2 absorbed by 3,391 five-meter-tall trees in a year. CCA board chairman Mr Chong Chan Yau attended the kick-off ceremony for “Supernova X’mas – Luminastic“ and presented the Carbon Neutral Event Certificate to Ms Rebecca Woo, Operation Director of K11.
