SHKP is committed to environmental protection and collected Chinese New Year food and gifts for the needy via its extensive property portfolio under the SHKP G Power initiative. It also supports activities staged by green groups with the public for a better living environment.
SHKP recently held a drive to collect Chinese New Year food and gifts from staff, residents and tenants for the needy, with over 100 drop-off points in residential estates, office buildings and shopping malls. Another drive had collection boxes in SHKP developments to encourage people to donate used lai see packets in good condition to green groups to promote reduction or reuse of waste.
SHKP supports environmental protection through various channels. Its Love Nature campaign enlisted staff volunteers and their relatives and friends to work with primary students to clear garbage from the beach at Ha Pak Nai in Tuen Mun, and it sponsors Green Power Love Nature educational kits for primary students to spread the green message.
SHKP property management subsidiaries Hong Yip and Kai Shing were recognized in the Environmental Protection Department’s 2011/12 Programme on Source Separation of Waste with three diamond awards, five golds, six silvers, 23 bronzes and a number of other honours. The management offices of International Commerce Centre and Millennium City 5 under Kai Shing also won gold labels in the LOOP (Low-carbon Office Operation Programme) organized by WWF-Hong Kong.
SHKP supported WWF’s global Earth Hour for the fifth year running and offered the sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck for the kick-off. There were over 200 developments managed by SHKP with lights switched off for the hour to support carbon reduction and energy saving.
