Hong Kong – 16 June 2017 Hip Shing Hong (Holdings) Company Ltd. (“Hip Shing Hong”) is pleased to announce that we are awarded the “Corporate Social Responsibility Awards 2017” organized by Capital Magazine in recognition of our continuing commitment to corporate social responsibility.

Over nearly the past 70 years, Hip Shing Hong believes giving back to the community it serves and those in need is paramount. Every year, Hip Shing Hong donates approximately 10% – 15% of its profit to the Fong Shu Fook Tong Foundation and Fong’s Family Foundation in order to support charitable causes in the area of education, elderly and children caring services, medical services, poverty alleviation and other.

Ms. Camille Lam, Head of Public Relations of Hip Shing Hong said, “Hip Shing Hong is committed to building a better community by supporting corporate social responsibility projects through innovative approaches. In 2009, Hip Shing Hong responded to the Government’s “Revitalization of Industrial Buildings” measures and revitalized its Good Prospect Building in Wong Chuk Hang to a commercial building named “Genesis,” a genuine work-life balance culture workplace. Moreover, Hip Shing Hong allocated around 10% of the space of Genesis to be leased to non-governmental organizations including Art Development Councils, Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups, and Tung Wah Group of Hospitals at one-third of the market rent to support young artists and start-up entrepreneurs to pursuit their dreams.”

In order to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the return of Hong Kong to our Motherland, Hip Shing Hong has arranged a series of activities and workshops to promote racial harmony among our community. This summer, Hip Shing Hong will invite nearly two hundred local and ethnic minorities’ primary school students to spend a day at the Hong Kong Ocean Park with aims to remove barrier among races and encourage cultural exchange.

Hip Shing Hong will continue to uphold the caring culture ingrained in our DNA and gives back to our community by engaging in various charitable projects.

The “Corporate Social Responsibility Awards 2017” organized by Capital and Capital Weekly Magazine aims to recognize the contributions and efforts of those enterprises’ corporate social responsibility projects. Awards criteria includes policy and strategic planning, marketplace and supply chain management, working environment and employee management, environmental protection, and community engagement to motivate corporates to act in their best standard of corporate social responsibility in order to improve the competitiveness of the business environment in Hong Kong.
