Climate change is widely recognised as one of the greatest global
challenges. CBI is mindful of its far-reaching implications for the
environment, for people, and for the economy – of which the Bank is a part. Its green programmes are guided by the four key principles of its environmental pledge: Energy Efficiency, Resource Efficiency, Ethical Code of Conduct and Commitment to the Promotion of Green Awareness, with the objective to promote environmental protection awareness amongst its staff and the general public of Hong Kong.
On recycled usage and waste reduction, the Bank organised an
internal staff campaign to collect used books and toys for
Christian Action to re-distribute to the needy or sell at its charity
flea market to raise funds for its charitable services and
programmes. Energy conservation is considered the most effective and quickest way to alleviate global climate change and improve air quality. The Bank launched PC Switch Off Campaign to encourage its staff to turn off their computers after work to save energy. In addition, the Bank joined Power Smart Campaign
2010 organised by Friends of the Earth (HK) (“FOE”) between 15
June and 12 September 2010. The three-month campaign aimed to encourage corporations and households to reduce electricity consumption.
The Group continued to focus its CSR efforts on three
established themes..nurturing leadership in young people while
enhancing the quality of education for underprivileged children,
building harmonious relationship with the environment, and caring
for the socially deprived communities.
