Landscape Management

To bond with the nature, the landscape management team tries every best to maintain the trees and other plants in good shape and health. Colouring the campus vividly with natural plantations can enhance the comfortability and attractiveness of the campus.

 

 

Indoor Air Quality Assurance

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) has significant impact on our health and comfort. Good IAQ may help improve the health of people who work in the relevant buildings. At Lingnan, inspections are performed regularly to monitor the IAQ and measures would be proposed to improve the IAQ if necessary.

The University participated the IAQ Certification Scheme for 10 years and got the “10 Years Commitment Award” in 2019. With the effort of the University in maintaining good hygiene in ventilation system and the room environment, and green purchase of building materials and equipment, our premises attained “Good Class” award under the IAQ Certification Scheme for years. 

For more information on the Scheme and the lists of certified premises, please visit the website by Environmental Protection Department of HKSAR Government:
