Local | 14 Sep 2021 9:00 am

As a premier property company in Hong Kong, Hang Lung has pledged to contribute to society through a variety of activities to discharge their corporate social responsibilities, as well as spread love and care to the community.

In Hong Kong as well as in mainland China, Hang Lung has set up ‘As One’ volunteer teams to serve the community in four main areas: youth development and education, environmental protection, service to the elderly, and diversity and inclusion.

In Hong Kong, the Hang Lung As One Volunteer Team recently partnered with the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups (HKFYG), inviting 100 primary students to visit the HKFYG Organic Farm to acquire some hands-on experience of organic farming, and take part in green workshops where they learned the importance of sustainable development.

“Operational excellence and business success cannot be decoupled from sustainability,” Mr. Weber Lo, CEO of Hang Lung Properties, emphasized. “In creating compelling spaces that enrich lives, we are committed to sustainable community investment initiatives that build up society while offering the opportunity for the company and our staff to give back to the people who inspire our work.”

“Our pride is in our insistence that ‘we do it well’” he added. "In the nationwide community service initiative to mark our anniversary, I am proud to see excellence upheld in our efforts to contribute to the sustainable development of our communities and the enrichment of lives.”

The volunteer team also prepared 1,000 eco gift packs, consisting of book vouchers, reusable lunch boxes, cups, straws, and tissues produced using recycled paper, and distributed them to students from underprivileged families or with long-term illnesses through seven NGOs. It is hoped that the gift packs will mark the start of a happy school term while encouraging a low carbon lifestyle.

Hang Lung is keenly aware of its responsibility to the community at large, and endeavors to give back to society through a variety of sustainable community investment initiatives. Since its establishment in Hong Kong in 2012, the Hang Lung As One Volunteer Team has expanded across 11 properties in nine cities on the mainland. As of 2020, Hang Lung As One Volunteer Teams have close to 1,700 corporate volunteers who have clocked up about 13,000 hours in service of community needs.
