Environment Day with beach clean up by 200 volunteers, primary students and teachers


Sun Hung Kai Properties Limited (SHKP) actively promotes environmental conservation and healthy, sustainable living by supporting different eco events, one of which is World Environment Day today (5 June).  The SHKP Love Nature campaign recruited over 200 volunteers and primary students and teachers in a beach clean up on Lamma Island, to appreciate nature and learn about coastal plants.

Participants cleaned the beautiful Lo So Shing beach on Lamma Island, which has mangrove associates sprawling hundreds of metres that host a number of coastal plants.  Volunteers and students collected plastic, metal and glass in teams and separated it for recycling.  Later there was a guided tour to see marine animals and plants such as gray nickers, horn-eyed ghost crabs, false pineapples and beach naupaka, and to learn about coastal ecology through interactive games.

Environmental protection is one of the core elements of sustainable development.  The SHKP Love Nature programme has organized a variety of coastal clean ups, outdoor learning events and workshops since 2011.  It also produced a series of fun, educational kits for over 500 primary schools.  About 2,000 SHKP volunteers and primary students and teachers have collected over 8,000 kg of waste in clean ups at Ting Kok in Tai Po, Lung Kwu Tan in Tuen Mun, Shui Hau Wan on South Lantau and Sha Chau and Lung Kwu Chau.

SHKP also incorporates green elements in its developments, many of which meet international green standards.  SHKP is committed to sustainability and practises green management in its large portfolio of malls, offices and residential estates to save energy, reduce waste and carbon emissions and enhance indoor air quality.
