Hong Kong ESG Reporting Awards 2019 Announces Partnerships with CUHK Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change and SDSN Hong Kong
HONG KONG, Jan, 21 2019 - (ACN Newswire) - The 2019 Hong Kong ESG Reporting Awards (HERA) today announces new partnerships with the Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change (MoCC), The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and the Hong Kong Chapter of the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN Hong Kong).
MoCC and SDSN Hong Kong will act as 'Sustainability Partners' of HERA 2019. The new partnerships reflect HERA's commitment to bringing together different stakeholder groups to promote and share expertise in addressing climate change, disclosures on sustainability and the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Cecilia Lam, Director of MoCC and Network Manager of SDSN Hong Kong, said, 'MoCC and SDSN Hong Kong are glad to support the Hong Kong ESG Reporting Awards. We are committed to promoting solutions and initiatives for sustainable development and the partnerships present a unique opportunity for Hong Kong businesses to contribute to the SDGs by taking action and promoting better disclosure in addressing climate change.'
Tony Wong, founder of Alaya Consulting, the organiser of HERA, stated, 'We are excited to have MoCC and SDSN Hong Kong on board. Sustainability requires concerted effort by different stakeholders working together. Their involvement will definitely help raise the awareness of the public, academia and the business community about the sustainability of businesses. Our collaboration, together with other partners, will be a contribution to more sustainable business practices in the region.'
Organised by Alaya Consulting and supported by independent judges, HERA advocates best practices for ESG disclosure and recognises corporates which are truly deserving in this. The first series of awards were presented in September 2018. HERA 2019 will commence accepting applications from companies, starting in the second quarter of 2019.
The Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change, funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, was established in December 2013 at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. It is the first museum of its kind in the world, offering an interactive, multimedia exhibition that showcases valuable collections and information about climate change. It is the ideal venue for the public, especially students and teachers, to champion the cause of environmental stewardship and keep themselves abreast of the latest developments on environmental conservation and sustainability.
