The table below presents a quantitative overview of our 2022 sustainable development performance. The 2022 data in these tables identified with the symbol [R] has been independently reported on by Deloitte.


Performance Indicators


  1. Totals may not be the exact sum of numbers shown here due to rounding.
  2. The number included in the 2021 report (which was estimated) has been revised to actual.
  3. Data has been restated following an improvement made to the measures for data collection from Swire Coca Cola so as to include all renewable electricity for 2021.
  4. Swire Pacific currently reports the major portion of its Scope 3 GHG emissions, which includes Scope 3 emissions for Swire Properties, Swire Coca-Cola and Taikoo Motors, and a proportion of the Cathay Pacific Groups and Hong Kong Aero Engine Services Limited total Scope 1 & 2 GHG emissions. The reported figures accounts for more than 90% of Swire Pacific total Scope 3 GHG emissions.
  5. We account for 45% of Cathay Pacific Group’s total GHG emissions under the Group’s scope 3 emissions, which is the same as our percentage ordinary shareholding interest in Cathay Pacific.
  6. We account for 50% of Hong Kong Aero Engine Services Limited (HAESL)’s total GHG emissions under the Group’s scope 3 emissions as HAESL is a joint venture company between Rolls-Royce and HAECO group.
  7. It is assumed that all other GHG gases (except CO2e) are negligible as these impacts still uncertain.
  8. Data refers to the gross emissions.
  9. Scope 3 emissions for Trading & Industrial has only included Scope 3 emissions from Taikoo Motors as it accounts for a major portion of the Group’s Scope 3 GHG emissions.
  10. For 2022, the environmental and H&S data for Swire Pacific Offshore companies covers the period from January to 22 April 2022 as it was divested since 22 April 2022.
  11. For 2021, the environmental and H&S data for Hongkong United Dockyards Group (HUD) covers the period from January to September as it was divested since October 2021.
  12. Total water withdrawal refers to the sum of water drawn from municipal water and groundwater. Virtually all water withdrawal by the Swire Pacific Group is from municipal water supplies provided by local water supply authorities.
  13. We used the World Resource Institute (WRI) Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas tool to map our water withdrawal by water stress levels.
  14. According to GRI 303-5, water consumption is defined as volume of water that is drawn into the boundaries of the organisation and not discharged back to the water environment or a third-party. Swire Coca-Cola is our largest consumer of water (>99%). It has provided its total water consumption.
  15. Staff data only relates to permanent staff (permanent full time staff, permanent part time staff and fixed contract employees in the Chinese mainland).
  16. In 2022, we updated our gender pay gap calculation method to produce a weighted average. The calculation is ((total pay for females / total number of females) – (total pay for males / total number of males)) / (total pay for males / total number of males).
  17. References in this document to Hong Kong are to Hong Kong SAR, to Macau are to Macao SAR and to Taiwan are to the Taiwan region.
