Introduction and Objectives
To raise involvement in environmentally-conscious practices among the manufacturing and services enterprises in Hong Kong and the Pan Pearl River Delta (PRD) region, Federation of Hong Kong Industries (FHKI) and Bank of China (Hong Kong) (BOCHK) have organised the BOCHK Corporate Environmental Leadership Awards Programme since 2015, fostering green initiatives to reduce environmental footprints in these communities.
FHKI has taken an active role 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. As both prestigious institutions share a similar pursuit in environmental protection, they join hands in a concerted effort to work toward a low-carbon and sustainable future. In a bid to further raise green awareness and reach out to a wider range of businesses, the 1-1-1 Programme was upgraded to One Enterprise - One Year - One Environmental Project Programme later in 2015.
In view of the national Belt and Road Initiative gaining ground across regions, the Programme has set up the Belt and Road Environmental Leadership Recognition Award to recognise distinguished enterprises who have made dedicated efforts in promoting green awareness and implementing environmental protection measures along the Belt and Road.
To engage small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the pursuit of environmental protection, the Programme has set up the SME Award in recognition of outstanding green projects initiated by the SMEs. Besides, embracing the new developments in Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao-Bay Area, the Programme has also set up the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao-Bay Area Environmental Leadership Recognition Award to recognise enterprises’ contribution in bringing forward more positive environmental impact in Bay Area’s city cluster.
