Report on the progress of Our Corporate Sustainability Programme
Asian Tigers Hong Kong has made continuous efforts to build a more sustainable business. We have adopted a wide range of measures on energy saving, waste management and sustainable use of resources to help to minimize our impact on the environment.
When e-waste is not disposed of correctly, it can produce toxic substances like lead causing environmental damage and creating increased risk to our water, soil, air and wildlife. Asian Tigers continue to support the WEEE program and help to collect and deliver over 200 pieces of e-waste to recycling plants.
Used packaging materials don’t simply disappear into thin air. Much of the waste is taken to landfill sites. Here, packaging materials including plastic and paper take hundreds of years to decompose. At Asian Tigers, we reuse some of the packaging materials. In addition, for those materials we are unable to reuse, we find a way to recycle them, In three years, we took over 50 tons of waste paper materials to recycle plant.
Reducing energy use is essential in the fight against climate change because traditional power plants burn fossil fuels that release greenhouse gases and contribute to air pollution. Asian Tigers undertakes various energy-saving initiatives which have helped us reduce electric consumption by 15% over a three-year period.
Toxic Emissions and Waste
Certified Management System
Toxic waste can harm people, animals, and plants, whether it ends up in the ground, in streams, or even in the air. Some toxins, such as mercury persist in the environment for many years and accumulate over time. Humans or wildlife often absorb these toxic substances when they eat fish or other prey. At Asian Tigers, we make sure our packing material is tested and toxinfree. Then chemical wastes are properly collected and taken to a recycling firm.
Environmental conservation is the practice of us humans saving the environment from the loss of species. We do our part by having the Asian Tigers Group actively support the WWF to conserve tigers in the wild. Between 2019 and 2022, the group donated $100,000 US dollars to help double the number of tigers in the wild.
An environmental certificate serves to drive and remind us that it is everyone’s job to protect the environment. By reducing and even preventing pollution, we continually improve the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the earth we inhabit. Asian Tigers has an environmental management system that is certified to meet ISO14001 standards as well as Wastewise standards.
Our People and Our Community
A safe and healthy workforce, with the right skills to move the industry into the future. We make an important contribution to regional communities through our presence, our business operations, and the community at large.
Employee Engagement, Fair & Respectful Treatment
Health, Safety & Wellbeing
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Creating a work environment where employees across all levels are treated with fairness, respect and dignity and that they have equal opportunities to thrive are the most important factors that could help to spur employee engagement. At Asian Tigers Hong Kong, we offer equitable benefits for all employees such as a profit-sharing program, paid annual leaves, marriage leaves and compassionate leaves. To improve employee engagement, we give employees the autonomy, resources and support they need to act independently and be held accountable for the decisions they make. In addition, we give recognition to high performing teams and long service employees.
We are committed to creating a workplace that allows people to perform and develop in a safe and healthy environment. We believe our employees must have the necessary support to reduce their stress and improve their health and personal performance. To make this happen, we provide safety training and equipment to our packers. All employees are invited to free flu vaccination annually and enrolled with free health insurance provided by the company. To reduce their stress at work and home, we arrange company outings for all employees and their immediate families.
Asian Tigers Hong Kong is always looking for ways to create a more diverse, equal and inclusive workforce and workplace. We believe disability should not be a barrier. The company supports the Social Welfare Department with its Scheme for Mentors of Employees with Disabilities to find and employ people with disabilities. These impairments cover hearing and vision issues. We provide training, support and modified working arrangements to help these people to adapt to our work environment.
