Reaching for Dreams

Article

The image of graduates joyfully throwing their caps into the air after receiving their degrees perfectly captures the fresh-faced optimism of young people ready to go out and conquer the working world.

Steps to Shrink Our Footprint

Multimedia with summary

Each of us leaves a carbon footprint on the planet…and yours is probably larger and more destructive than you think. By making small, simple changes to our daily habits, we can tread more lightly and help build a more sustainable future. Here are four ways to start a lower-carbon lifestyle today.

1. Cook smartly

The way you cook plays an important part in reducing carbon emissions. Induction cookers, microwaves, and slow cookers are more energy-efficient than traditional ovens, reducing the size of your energy bills as well as your carbon footprint.

The Power of Design Thinking

The colourful post-it notes on the walls of the training workshops reflect the illuminating spirit of Design Thinking: They succinctly capture the pain points of users, and set the scene for participants to brainstorm ideas and find innovative solutions to everyday problems.

CLP has provided Design Thinking training sessions to more than 4,000 Hong Kong employees over the past two years. The company has also designed a badging system for employees to work their way up a graded pathway from ‘apprentice’ to ‘practitioner’ to ‘assistant coach’ to ‘coach’ to ‘fellow’.
