Engaging Our People in Shaping a Green Future

Sustainability | May 1, 2022

In the recent LinkedIn online forum themed “Shaping Our Green Economy”, our Vice Chair and Chair of Sustainability Steering Committee Mr. Adriel Chan shared our sustainability approach and how we engage our people on sustainability.


Sustainability is one of our core values and we have a mission to pursue sustainable growth by connecting our customers and communities

“The challenge of climate change is so big. There’ll be setbacks and challenges but persevere and don’t give up! Otherwise, the costs are just too much for us as the human race to bear.” —— Mr. Adriel Chan, Vice Chair and Chair of Sustainability Steering Committee

At Hang Lung, we aspire to become one of the most sustainable real estate companies in the world. To make our aspiration digestible and relatable to our people, Adriel shared that we have taken a top-down and bottom-up approach, beginning from top-level commitment to an actionable sustainability framework to engaging our people and providing them with a clear agenda with the setting of annual ESG KPIs, our 25 x 25 Sustainability Targets, the 2030 Sustainability Goals and Targets, and our 2050 commitment to reach net zero value chain emissions in alignment with the Science Based Targets Initiative’s (SBTi) Net Zero standard.

Engaging our people is the key to progress in our sustainability journey. To ensure views and expectations, which help define our sustainability strategies, are well received, we are committed to different forms of engagement including annual conferences and focus groups, as well as an employee engagement survey. Apart from the setting of ESG KPIs, we also provide training and organize events to enhance awareness and understanding about sustainability among our people. One of our 2025 Sustainability Targets is to deliver ESG training to all departments at all levels. Only by working hand-in-hand as one team, can we achieve our goal of sustainability leadership.
