Major biodiversity loss and ecosystem collapse are one of the top five global risks for the next ten years. Extraction of natural resources and pollution are among the key drivers of biodiversity loss, with severe implications for the economy and public health and well-being, as well as for our supply chain. We hope to protect biodiversity by enhancing our operations and raising public awareness.
A Group-level Biodiversity Policy has been introduced to illustrate our commitment to protecting the natural environment throughout the design and operation of our products and services. We strive for Sustainable SITES Initiative (“SITESTM”) certification by the U.S. Green Building Council where possible – a framework for sustainable landscape development projects with a focus on landscape, ecosystems and biodiversity.
We actively promote biodiversity and its conservation. For example, Nature Discovery Park, Hong Kong’s first urban biodiversity museum and sustainability-themed education park at K11 MUSEA, offers guided green tours, urban farming workshops and farm-to-table experiences. The Park hosts over 180 plants with a majority of local species and butterfly food plants to maintain the integrity of urban butterfly habitats. The farm at the Park supports the local and organic food movement by sharing agricultural knowledge with the community and tenants.
