About the Programme

Introduction

Launched in 2004, the HSBC Living Business has been helping small and medium-sized enterprises (“SMEs”) in Hong Kong to become more competitive and productive by incorporating socially and environmentally sustainable practices into their business operations. This programme serves as an interactive platform for local SMEs to acquire knowledge and share experience in corporate sustainability.

In 2010, Green Achievement Award, Caring For People Award and Community Engagement Award have been introduced to recognise SMEs with good performance in corresponding fields. As of the 13th HSBC Living Business in 2017, more than 9,100 applications to the Awards from local SMEs have been received. Meanwhile, more than 3,700 certificates have been issued to recognise SME with significant achievements in environmental protection, social caring and community engagement.

Entering the 14th event, HSBC Living Business has come to a new page. To echo with HSBC’s new sustainability approach – sustainable networks and entrepreneurship, the Programme will focus on supporting the sustainable development of supply chains, and new elements such as Sustainable Development Goals will be incorporated into the Programme, fostering new business development and sustainable international growth of SMEs.
