Why reporting matters
Our sustainability reporting sets out our approach to sustainability, ethics and good governance. Our approach to sustainability reporting is integral to our commitment to have an open and honest dialogue with our stakeholders – we believe that this approach helps to create value for all our stakeholders, enabling us to thrive together.
This is our 11th annual sustainability report. It has been prepared as an interactive website and is available in English and Traditional Chinese. It has been prepared with reference to the Core level of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards and the comply or explain provisions and recommended disclosures in the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Reporting Guide (ESG Guide) of The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (HKEx).
This report relates to our sustainability performance during the year ending 31 December 2017. It covers SwireTHRIVE (our environmental sustainability strategy), progress towards our 2020 goals, and other material topics identified through our materiality assessments and relevant financial and operational performance. It describes Swire’s corporate governance relevant to sustainability and how we integrate sustainability into identifying and managing risks and opportunities. A GRI Standards and HKEx content index is available at the end of the report. This report follows our previous report, published in July 2017.
