Caring for the environment

Climate change, pollution and overexploitation of natural resources all pose a substantial threat to society and the long-term sustainability of our natural systems. For this reason, the Group remains dedicated to doing our part to protect the environment and conserve natural resources. Over the years, we have strived to minimize the negative impacts arising from our operations by proactively adopting environmentally-friendly measures and policies in forms of reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions; reducing waste; and using resources wisely.

Promoting work-life balance

We understand that employees view achieving a healthy work-life balance as a primary concern and the Group makes every endeavor to promote this goal. Starting 1 January 2019, we eliminated the alternate Saturday workday in our Hong Kong office and switched to a five-day work week so that employees can enjoy weekends with families and friends.
