We inspire and support our people to be mindful of how they can reduce environmental impact in their daily lives and we support them by taking action to reduce consumption and waste.
Integrating sustainability features into how we design, build and renovate our spaces is an integral part of our effort to reduce our footprint and maintain a healthy, safe and aesthetically-pleasing working environment for our people.
Resources such as energy, water and raw materials are essential inputs to our business. We are committed to using resources wisely and efficiently and reducing waste generation within our own operations.
In 2015 we reduced our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and our electricity and water consumption against our 2014 baseline in both absolute quantities and intensities. From 2010 to 2014, we achieved year-on-year reductions in the intensity of our GHG emissions and in our consumption of electricity, water and paper. In recognition of our efforts, we received the Hong Kong Award for Environmental Excellence – Gold Award for the Servicing and Trading sector – and the Hong Kong Green Organization Certificate from the Hong Kong SAR Government’s Environmental Campaign Committee.
