Sustainability in the Capital Markets is Here to Stay

Article

Green and sustainable finance has moved from being a niche play to taking pole position in the global economic race over the past decade. It has been transformed from a nice-to-have agenda item to an urgent discussion in the global capital markets.

Green Wave Sweeps Hong Kong

Article

Carbon neutrality is no longer a distant dream. It is a goal and an imperative after the Hong Kong government set 2050 as a target date to achieve it in the battle to combat climate change.

An important factor in reaching that goal is to use more renewable energy – a clean, inexhaustible, and increasing cost-competitive option that allows development without putting future generations in jeopardy.

Four Steps to Green Power

Article

Businesses worldwide are embracing the advantages of going green, and renewable energy is an effective way for companies to reduce their carbon footprints. It not only shows corporate social responsibility, but can also bring commercial benefits.

It isn’t often that the arrival of an electricity bill puts a smile on a customer’s face – but the first bill of 2021 was an exception for 70-year-old retiree Carrie Chui, who lives with her husband in Hong Kong’s New Territories.

3D Design Opens Window on Cities of the Future

Building design used to be a dreary, tedious process. Bespectacled architects and earnest planners would troop into an office, unfolding sheet after sheet of lifeless, black and white technical drawings along with measurements only a mathematician could fathom.

Then, suddenly, something happened that brought the images to life and made the buildings, the streets, and the very cityscapes of tomorrow leap off the page in glorious 3D technicolour. It was like opening a window into the future.

The Document That Transformed Hong Kong's Power Industry

Article

It’s the document that allows CLP to bring electricity into the homes of 2.65 million Hong Kong customers, and an agreement that played a key role in helping the city grow from a fishing port into a world-famous metropolis.

The Scheme of Control (SoC) agreement is a vital document that sets out the basis for CLP to do business and serves as a framework by which the government monitors CLP's financial, operational, and environmental performance. 

Igniting an Innovation Culture

Article

It’s probably happened to us all. We’re given directions to a friend or colleague’s home in a remote area, and try as we might, we can’t find the location on our maps or apps.

For most of us, it’s an occasional annoyance. But for frontline CLP employees performing routine meter reading services everyday, confusing street numbers and vague addresses could cost them a huge amount of time and effort.
