The projects have been providing us immediate commercial savings. Frankly speaking, the important thing for this type of project is for Hana to show that we are serious about our ESG initiatives to our shareholders, and would like to ensure that we will do whatever we can in order to reduce our carbon footprints and make our companies greener. We also would like to thank IEAT for the support given to us. We are very appreciative of government support.
