(Hong Kong, June 24, 2019) Hang Lung Group Limited (Stock Code: 00010) and Hang Lung Properties Limited (Stock Code: 00101) have published their online Sustainability Reports 2018, which outline the Companies’ new strategic sustainability framework, Our Sustainable Future, with clear goals and targets leading towards 2030. The long-term framework, together with the publication of the seventh standalone sustainability reports, reaffirms Hang Lung’s unwavering commitment to sustainable development and enhancing value for shareholders and stakeholders.
 
Upholding the sustainability principle of Build to Own, Build to Last, Build for Our Future, Hang Lung embraces high standards of corporate governance, customer centricity, service excellence, and social and environmental commitments across all aspects of its business operations. The new framework builds on the solid foundation of existing sustainability achievements and gleans from insights collected from a comprehensive stakeholder engagement exercise undertaken in 2018. It sets out nine focus areas under three pillars of Future of Experience, Future of Space, and Best-in-class Operating Practices, with 11 new targets leading up to 2030.
 
Mr. Weber Lo, Chief Executive Officer of Hang Lung Group and Hang Lung Properties, said, “At Hang Lung, sustainable development is one of the core values that we uphold. This new sustainability framework will further raise our bar and strengthen our ability to deliver long-term value in the communities in which we operate.”

Future of Experience

  • All properties, offices and workplaces shall achieve international wellness standards
 
Future of Space

  • Avoid 75% of construction waste and 25% reduction of commercial waste going to landfill
  • A 50% reduction in overall carbon intensity (baseline: 2015)

  • All properties and functions shall have adequate capacity and robust system to monitor, manage and report sustainability impacts regularly
