Labelling Scheme 

The LOOP Labelling Scheme encourages, accelerates and recognizes the efforts of Hong Kong companies and other organisations in the creation and implementation of actions to combat climate change by reducing their office operation-related greenhouse gas emissions.

Participating companies or organisations are evaluated against a set of performance criteria and all their overall scores are arranged in order from the lowest to the highest to determine the label class the company or organisation has achieved. More details on this process will be made available to participating companies.
