As an upstanding corporate citizen of the Hong Kong community, we understand from our business philosophy and operations down to the personal values of our staff that we must be aligned with the expectations and the well-being of the many people and organisations that support us. Accordingly, we have implemented a number of sustainability initiatives across the Company to ensure that we continue reducing our impact on the environment, including waste and energy reduction programmes, and e-statement initiative, among others.
This focus on creating a sustainable company intersects our broader community outreach programme, which over the years has seen us partner with a growing range of notable charitable organisations across the areas of education, healthcare, arts and culture, environment, including, but not limited to, ORBIS, UNICEF, Friends of the Earth, Yan Oi Tong, Tung Wah Group of Hospitals, Community Chest and Hong Chi Association. We were also one of the first companies to be named a Caring Company by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service, a recognition of our commitment to improving the lives of our staff and assisting the community.
As we look to the future, we will continue to devote our time, resources and capital to fostering a stronger and sustainable Hong Kong.
