SHKP wins fifth Platinum Honour at The Asset’s Excellence in Management and Corporate Governance Awards
For the fifth time, Sun Hung Kai Properties Limited (SHKP) received the prestigious Platinum Award for Excellence in Management and Corporate Governance from international finance magazine, The Asset. SHKP was the only property developer in Hong Kong to receive the accolade, which is judged by the global investment community, in recognition of its excellent financial performance and strong commitment to corporate social responsibility.
The Asset’s Excellence in Management and Corporate Governance Awards invites companies from across Asia to submit information each year on a broad range of criteria including financial performance, corporate governance, corporate social responsibility, environmental conservation and investor relations. Global professional investors and financial analysts subsequently determine a winner that excels across all categories.
SHKP Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer Patrick K W Chan commented: “We are delighted that The Asset and the broader investment community have again recognised the Group’s significant financial, operational and corporate social responsibility achievements.
“This award is a great endorsement of our vision of ‘Building Homes with Heart’, which permeates all aspects of our business, and is a fitting tribute to our highly professional management team that has a wealth of diverse skills and experiences. We have well-established policies and effective mechanisms in place for the Executive Committee to implement the Group’s business strategies collectively and this has been instrumental to our success throughout the years. SHKP, as a responsible developer, will strive to maintain its leading market position through its continuous efforts in contributing to the community in a sustainable manner, maintaining good corporate governance standards and optimising shareholder returns.”
The Group intends to further build on the commendation it has received from investors and The Asset by enhancing its corporate governance and management structure, increasing its interactions with investors and strengthening its market position in Hong Kong and in mainland China by continuing to deliver high quality products and services. SHKP is also fully committed to being a good corporate citizen. In 2015 it will again focus on promoting reading and holistic development, healthy and sustainable living, community care and staff welfare, and on devoting great effort in supporting sustainable development.
