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.
