Past event: The BOCHK Corporate Low-Carbon Environmental Leadership Awards Ceremony
Aug 8, 2023
Focus & Co (Far East) Limited was honoured to be recongised and certified as an EcoPartner again for The BOCHK Corporate Low-Carbon Environmental Leadership Awards programme. Focus & Co strived to provide innovate air filtering solutions for corporate to improve their ESG and IAQ standard.
The BOCHK Corporate Low-Carbon Environmental Leadership Awards (the Awards), organised by Federation of Hong Kong Industries (“FHKI”) and sponsored by Bank of China (Hong Kong) (“BOCHK”) since 2015, aims to promote active participation in environmentally conscious practices among the manufacturing, services and property management enterprises in Hong Kong and the Pan-Pearl River Delta (Pan-PRD) region to further reduce environmental footprints.
FHKI has been actively involved in encouraging the manufacturing sectors in Hong Kong and the Pan-PRD region to step up efforts in undertaking corporate social responsibility and reducing their environmental impact since the launch of the One Factory - One Year - One Environmental Project Programme (“1-1-1 Programme”) in 2005. As a leading listed commercial banking group in Hong Kong, BOCHK has also been dedicated to supporting green campaigns and reducing carbon emission. With a shared pursuit of environmental protection, the two prestigious institutions join hands in a concerted effort to work towards a low-carbon and sustainable future. Later in 2015, the 1-1-1 Programme had been upgraded to One Enterprise - One Year - One Environmental Project Programme, in an effort to further cultivate green awareness and reach out to a wider range of businesses. In 2022, the name of the Awards has been upgraded to "BOCHK Corporate Low-Carbon Environmental Leadership Awards" to support the national and HKSAR Government in achieving carbon neutrality. The Low-Carbon Commitment Logo was also introduced to promote low-carbon transformation.
To engage more small and medium enterprises (“SMEs”) in the pursuit of environmental protection and recognising their efforts and achievements in undertaking green initiatives, the SME Award has been established. Besides, in order to embrace the new developments in the national Belt and Road Initiative and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (“GBA”), the Belt and Road Environmental Leadership Recognition Award and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Environmental Leadership Recognition Award seek to honour enterprises with outstanding performance and contributions in making positive environmental impacts in countries and regions along the Belt and Road or cities in the GBA. The Sustainable Business Award was added to the Awards 2020 to recognise their consecutive efforts in advocacy and promotion of green initiatives.
