AIA Hong Kong sees fulfilling corporate social responsibility as a way for the sustainable growth of Hong Kong society. For the 13th consecutive year, AIA Hong Kong has been honoured with the “Caring Company” logo by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS) for its long-term and continual commitment to corporate social responsibility. It has been one of the few companies to hold the distinction for so long. AIA Hong Kong has also been honoured for the fourth year in a row with Mirror Magazine’s "Outstanding Corporate Social Responsibility” award for its social contribution and commitment in sustaining the development of society.
Mr Jacky Chan, Chief Executive Officer of AIA Hong Kong and Macau, said, “AIA’s ‘The Real Life Company’ brand promise embodies the ideas of good corporate citizenship and encourages us to go beyond the pursuit of excellence in business alone. It fills me with pride to see our financial planners and staff being proactive in contributing to the local community. It creates value for both customers and our society as a whole. At AIA Hong Kong, we regard corporate social responsibility as a long-term commitment, and the cornerstone of sustainable development.”
Celebrating its 13th anniversary this year, the HKCSS’s “Caring Company Logo” has become the most respected mark of good corporate citizenship. Its mission is to cultivate corporate citizenship for a caring community and to promote strategic partnerships between the business and social services sectors. The programme rewards companies that have demonstrated three “Caring” aspects - caring for community, caring for employees and caring for environment.
AIA Hong Kong has also won for the fourth time the “Outstanding Corporate Social Responsibility Award”, presented by Mirror Magazine. This is the first corporate social responsibility award in the Greater China region. The win underscores AIA Hong Kong’s excellent performance with regard to responsibility to stakeholders, employee care, environment protection, customer commitment, social engagement and leadership.
