Over 170 senior executives and sustainability experts from across the Swire group attended the group’s fifth Sustainable Development (“SD”) Forum, held in Hong Kong on 12th and 13th November 2015. The annual forum was opened by Mark Watson, Head of Sustainable Development, John Swire & Sons (H.K.) Limited. Swire Pacific Chairman, John Slosar, who gave the keynote speech, said that the Board is looking into creating a Swire Pacific SD Fund, supporting SD projects that would usually not meet the required financial criteria for implementation. He was followed by Martin Cubbon, Swire Pacific’s Corporate Development & Finance Director, who emphasised the importance of SD in risk management. The afternoon session was opened by Barnaby Swire, Chairman of John Swire & Sons Limited, who reaffirmed sustainable development as one of the Swire group’s strategic pillars. The forum concluded with the announcement of the winners of the annual Sustainable Development Project Competition, which recognises outstanding SD initiatives around the group. This year, the Best Sustainability Project Award went to James Finlay Kenya, which has made use of solar microgrids to provide electricity to one of its tea estates where 93% of households are not connected to mains electricity.
