Wing Tai takes pride in being an outstanding member of the communities we operate in. As such, we have introduced a few initiatives under our Corporate Social Responsibility mission and shall continue to seek innovative and meaningful ways to engage our employees and associates in building stronger and more vibrant communities.
Our 2017 activities have included the followings:
After Chinese New Year, we collected red packets from the staff for the Red Packets Reuse and Recycling Programme organised by local group Greeners to support environmental protection.
As a part of the real estate industry in Hong Kong, we donated funds to the Construction Charity Fund in May to support injured or deceased workers’ families.
To support the eyeglasses recycling program organised by the Polytechnic University, we collected unwanted but usable eyeglasses from our staff in May and delivered them to the University. The recycled eyeglasses were then screened, cleaned and re-distributed to people in need.
In the past year, we joined the “COOL Corporate Membership Scheme 2017/18” organised by the Friends of Earth and we were awarded the “Sustainability Leader Award - Bronze Award” in August in recognition of our efforts in environmental protection and sustainable development, particularly in energy saving and recycling.
We organized the Blood Donation Day with Hong Kong Red Cross in August at Landmark East to support life-saving initiatives.
We supported the TWGHs Flag Day on 30 August by allowing TWGHs flag sellers to sell flags in the communal area at Landmark East. Donations raised will be allocated to enhance the quality of TWGHs’ community services in providing warmth and hope to the underprivileged and helping them overcome adversities in their lives.
In September, we organized the Elderly Home Visit to the TWGHs Chu Sau Cheung Nursing Home.
In September, we collected old school bags from the staff for the Give My Bag Program 2017 organized by the Silver Lining Foundation. The organiser delivered the school bags to the students in the remote mountainous areas of Guangxi.
In October, we collected shoes from the staff for the “Good Shoes Recycling Campaign”, co-organised by the Hong Kong Caritas and Hong Kong Lasallian Family. The shoes collected in the campaign were distributed to barefooted Africans to protect their feet against risk of infection.
We have participated in Heifer’s fundraising event “Race to Feed” for 7 consecutive years. The event was held in November. We sent two teams, one from Wing Tai and the other from Lanson Place, joined 1K x 5 Relay Run. Donations raised will be allocated to poverty alleviation projects in China to provide knowledge and skills so that impoverished rural families in China can sustain themselves.
