Swire Pacific and Swire Properties have both been recognised for their efforts in sustainable development.

Swire Pacific improved its MSCI ESG Research rating from "AA" to "AAA" in 2018, and retained its position on the MSCI Global Sustainability Index and MSCI Global SRI Index. The company maintained its "AA" rating on the Hang Seng Corporate Sustainability and Hang Seng Corporate Sustainability Benchmark Indices, scoring ahead of all other Hong Kong listed companies in the environment category. Swire Pacific continues to be included on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index ("DJSI") Asia Pacific.

Meanwhile, Swire Properties won the Business Leadership in Sustainability Award and the Special Recognition: Better Places for People Award at the World Green Building Council's Asia Pacific Leadership in Green Building Awards 2018. The company also retained its place on three major sustainability indices, and for the second consecutive year was the only company from Hong Kong and Mainland China to be listed on the DJSI World Index. Swire Properties ranked in the top 20% of more than 900 entities assessed in the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark ("GRESB") in 2018, receiving the highest possible "GRESB 5 Stars" rating and being named Global Sector Leader in the Other (mixed-use development) category.
