Hang Lung Properties has been awarded the "2021
Corporate Social Responsibility Model Award" at the 10th China Finance Summit,
recognizing its long-term commitment to corporate social responsibility and
promoting community investment – a tangible expression of the company's motto, We
Do It Well.
Mr. Weber Lo, Chief Executive Officer of Hang Lung
Properties, said, "As a leading real estate developer, Hang Lung pursues
sustainable growth by connecting our customers and communities. Our 2030
sustainability goals and targets are an operational priority, helping us on our
path become one of the most sustainable real estate companies in the world. An
integral part of our corporate culture is the distilling of our concern for
"caring about people" through all levels of the organization. In all our
endeavors, from talent cultivation and employee wellbeing to environmental
protection and community engagement, we are committed to creating shared value
for all our stakeholders. To this end, we encourage our employees to be
actively involved in volunteer activities, and continuously commit our
resources to sustainable community investment initiatives."
Hang Lung has always been committed
to fulfilling its corporate social responsibilities and established the "Hang
Lung As One Volunteer Team" in Hong Kong in 2012 to take the lead in community
projects. In addition to Hong Kong, currently all 11 projects across the
company's Mainland portfolio encompassing Shanghai, Shenyang, Jinan, Wuxi,
Tianjin, Dalian, Kunming, Wuhan, and Hangzhou, have formed teams of local volunteers
with a focus on youth development and education, elderly services, and
environment protection. Leveraging its corporate resources and the generous
commitment of its staff, the company hopes to build an inclusive and diverse society.
In the past year alone, Hang Lung As One received the support of close to 1,700
members, who participated in over 100 service programs, reaching over 20,000
beneficiaries and contributing over 13,000 service hours. To commemorate the company's
anniversary in a meaningful way, our volunteer teams consisting of staff and their
family members, friends, and tenants, will join forces in a nation-wide
volunteer activity every September.
Volunteerism is part of the Hang Lung corporate
culture. By providing opportunities to serve, training, and due recognition, the
company encourages staff, along with their family members and friends, to join volunteer
programs to address social needs. The "2021 Corporate Social Responsibility
Model Award" and the "2020 Public Welfare Practice Award" previously awarded at
the 10th China Charity Festival are an encouraging recognition of
the company's commitment and its people's dedication to community investment.
The "2021 Corporate Social Responsibility
Model Award" was presented by the China Finance Summit. Established in 2012, the China
Finance Summit is one of the most
influential events in China's economic field and celebrates its 10th edition this year.
