Climate change and the recent global pandemic have created an even greater urgency for us to prioritise and rebalance our focus on environmental and social issues. In 2021, the Group will be embarking on the next stage of strengthening our sustainability agenda and enabling a more holistic approach in it.
By continuously tracking the indicators for our material sustainability issues, the Group is able to monitor and remain accountable to its key stakeholders on the sustainable development of the business. We are hopeful that this on-going effort will result in improvements year-on-year.
Despite the challenging business environment, we remain committed to being a responsible corporate citizen. Our goal is to exercise cost discipline, organisational restructuring and strategy repositioning to tide our businesses through the rough patch, as we continue to march on this sustainability journey ahead.
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, we have taken various measures to safeguard our employees’ health and safety, as well as activated our Business Continuity Plan to mitigate any challenges from any business disruption.
With these changes implemented, the Group is going into 2018 leaner, and more flexible to transform as the market demands of us. Our focus will be kept on growing the business sustainably and we remain committed to being a responsible corporate citizen.
