Supporting Local Procurement
To promote environmental and social responsibility along our value chain, we prefer local suppliers whenever possible to reduce carbon emissions from transportation and to support the local economy. During the reporting year, we worked with over 4,600 suppliers, 98% of them are locally based.
Safeguarding the Safety and Welfare of Our Construction Workers
Health and safety remain our top priority at our construction sites, so we have implemented a number of initiatives to reduce health and safety risks. During the reporting year, our contractors recorded an accident rate of 7.98 per 1,000 workers (much lower than the Hong Kong industry average) on our construction sites.
Applying Innovative Technologies to Improve Construction Safety
We developed and introduced a smart management solution named SmartWorks at one of our construction sites. The solution equips workers with smart helmets that integrate IoT (Internet of Things) sensors and GPS tracking, allowing workers’ real-time health condition, as well as their attendance record, to be closely monitored on-site.
