Environmental responsibility is a key element of our commitment to sustainable development. Our approach is guided by the Swire Pacific Sustainable Development Policy, and we are compelled to integrate environmental considerations into our decision-making, management and culture.

We aim to comply with all environmental regulations and requirements related to our operations and development activities. We assess the environmental impact of our activities and promote environmental sustainability in the planning, design, construction, operation, maintenance and demolition of all our facilities and services.

We support building rating schemes that measure environmental impacts, as they provide a mark of quality that commercial tenants, buyers, investors and employees recognise and value. In Hong Kong, 14 of our properties are rated “Excellent” or “Platinum”, the highest ratings under the independent Building Environmental Assessment Method (BEAM). We aim to achieve BEAM Platinum for our new projects in Hong Kong, and the US Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold and Platinum standard for selected parts of our new developments in Mainland China.


In order to keep track of our environmental impacts, we monitor our environmental impacts through our Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) database and our senior management are regularly updated on incidents and progress through our Sustainable Development Steering Committee and the Swire Group Sustainability Committee. The ways in which our property development and management activities may impact the environment include greenhouse gas emissions from electricity used in our buildings; waste generated in the operation, construction and demolition of buildings; water used in building operations; noise pollution and impacts to air quality.

Our commitment and approach to environmental sustainability has been recognised with a wide range of awards and certifications. In addition to our LEED- and BEAM-certified buildings, we have received environmental honours from a range of independent bodies.
