We work closely with our commercial and residential tenants so that we can collectively create a greener environment in our properties. The farming sessions at the Hysan Place’s Urban Farm, for example, provide an effective platform for us to share environmental messages with them, as well as other visitors ranging from local urban farmers, to students from oversea universities, as well as senior environmental officials from the U.S. government. We also provided comprehensive information kits to aid our Hysan Place office tenants to achieve highest international environmental certification for their interiors.
Subsequent to the opening of Hysan Place’s Sky Wetland, we initiated the “Green Wonders” programme for kids to tour around the green facilities in Hysan Place and to join environmentally-focused workshops, with the aim to promote sustainable living.
In the community, Hysan supports a number of green organisations through staff participation, joint programmes with our tenants, and sponsorships. These organisations include:
- Business Environment Council
- The Conservancy Association
- Environmental Protection Department, the Government of the HKSAR (Carbon Reduction Charter)
- Friends of the Earth
- Greeners Action
- Green Sense
- Hong Kong Green Building Council
- Smiley Planet
- World Wide Fund For Nature
We are also in close dialogue with a number of other green organisations to learn more about their work and aim to create further partnerships with them in the coming years.
Details on our environmental initiatives can be viewed in the section on Responsible Business in the latest Annual Report.
