at our heart
The impact we can make
Our independence from public or family ownership, puts Chinachem in the privileged position of being able to place the welfare of our community at the top of our priorities. Therefore, it’s vital to take a sustainable approach to everything we do.
• That means working harder to conserve resources and reduce emissions.
• It means creating greater opportunities for those who work for us, and improving how we look after those we serve.
• And it means enhancing the future of the communities around us, changing their lives for the better by sharing the value we create.
Creating places with heart
As a community focused developer, we create places where people congregate and enjoy shared experiences. And these venues for work, life, and play, must have sustainability and liveability woven into them from the core, because at Chinachem we build for the long term. And our future requires fresh perspectives.
For example, more than a quarter of Hong Kong’s population will be over 60 by 2033, with the city’s median age climbing to 49 years old. That means a new approach to the places we create, taking the changing needs of our community into account.
We cannot achieve this alone though. That’s why we’re committing more and more energy to bring our stakeholders, suppliers, and financiers along with us on this sustainable journey.
ESG meets PPP
Societal expectations over the last decade, have led to the emergence of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) as a means of benchmarking companies’ policies and operating procedures. And whilst non-financial in nature, experience globally has proven that paying attention to, and investing in, the non-financial factors of ESG, is a route to higher levels of value creation.
Chinachem is acutely aware of the significance of this link, and that’s why since 2019, it has placed ESG values on an equal footing to profit. We refer to this triple bottom line approach as the three Ps; People, Prosperity and Planet.
Sharing stories of success
In an industry that takes years to go from concept to completion of a project or product, the pace of progress can seem slow on the outside, with foundational improvements often taking a long time to work through the system to the user. Therefore, we’re working very hard to bring all of our stakeholders on this journey with us, not just to share in our wins, but also to encourage participation and support from them. Yes, reports and metrics are vital for tracking progress. But telling the stories of lives that are improved, processes that are optimized, and waste that is reduced, are vital incentives to all our colleagues, partners, investors and collaborators.
