On a journey to transform our business, industry and city.
At the heart of Chinachem
“The future for Chinachem centres around maximising our positive impact. Creating better environments, stronger communities and shared value throughout.”
The Chinachem Group occupies a unique position in the landscape of Hong Kong property developers. Neither publicly listed, nor held by a family, our primary focus is to create value that will benefit the communities surrounding us.
Whilst we’re one of Hong Kong’s largest real estate businesses, we hold in our heart a promise to improve the lives of those we touch, by always aligning profit with purpose.
That special pledge, to make a long lasting, positive impact on society is the driving force behind everything we do. And to achieve it, we take a balanced approach to business.
To us, people, prosperity, and the planet all matter equally.
