Sustainable Construction 


Sustainable Profitability

Since 2016, Hong Kong listed companies are required to comply with the "Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Reporting Guidelines". ESG advocates incorporating environmental protection, social responsibility and corporate governance into corporate management. To complement the past practice of mainly focusing the financial performance, ESG focuses on the corporates’ long-term sustainable economic, social and environmental development with ultimate goal to achieve a win-win situation. Considering ESG in corporate, how can we strike a balance between sustainable construction and sustainable profitability?
