2017 Sustainability Report

Swire Pacific

Swire has been in business for over 200 years

From a modest Liverpool-based, import-export company established over 200 years ago in 1816, the Swire group has grown into a highly diversified global conglomerate. Our business has stood the test of time because we have always looked ahead and taken the right decisions for the long term.

Headquartered in Hong Kong and listed on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited, Swire Pacific Limited (SWRAY 00019 and SWRBY 00087) is a key part of the Swire group. Swire Pacific is one of the leading companies in Hong Kong, with five operating divisions: Property, Aviation, Beverages, Marine Services and Trading & Industrial. The Group’s operations are predominantly located in Greater China, where the name Swire or 太古 has been established for over 150 years.

We take a long-term perspective when formulating strategy and this is reflected in the nature of our investments. We are proud of our long history but we are also focused on the future. We pride ourselves on being forward-looking and innovative. These qualities have helped us grow and enabled us to set benchmarks in the industries in which we operate.
