An environmentally-friendly system is used which meets international standards
In regard to infrastructure, the cable cars are designed in such a way that noises from Ngong Ping 360’s systems and motors are reduced to meet the requirements of the Hong Kong Building Environmental Assessment Method (HK-BEAM) and to minimise noise pollution to nearby residents.
The exterior lighting levels are also maintained to international standards to reduce light pollution.
