Background


To promote the appreciation and adoption of corporate social responsibility (CSR) as a progressive model for achieving business sustainability among listed companies in Hong Kong, the Sustainability Management Research Centre of the Department of Management and Marketing at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, has joined forces with the Hong Kong Council of Social Services and Hong Kong Productivity Council to compile the Hong Kong Business Sustainability Index.


The concept of sustainability has received global attention as a strategic direction for human society and is gradually being recognized in Hong Kong today. In the name of sustainable development, the industrial and business sectors have started to make a conscious attempt to search for a viable model for achieving business sustainability. Business sustainability has been increasingly conceptualized in terms of CSR from a stakeholder perspective. The fundamental idea is that enterprises that are responsible and caring towards their stakeholder groups in the process of doing business are more likely than non-responsible enterprises to sustain the life span of their business operation. CSR is the core of business sustainability to be integrated with business strategy and incorporated in operation practices. In the process of doing business, companies should consider not only economic profit, but also the greater need to be concerned with social well-being and protect the environment. It is hoped that this will benefit multiple stakeholders, ultimately achieving business sustainability and long-term development.

Listed companies are the engines for achieving business sustainability in an economy. It is necessary for them to undergo a long journey in sustaining their effort to promote CSR. Individual listed companies must not only continuously improve their knowledge and understanding of CSR management and practice, but also maintain long-term dedication and commitment to CSR. The compilation of this Index serves to assess the level of business sustainability achieved by the leading listed companies in the Hong Kong stock market, provide a bench mark of CSR practices for both local and international business communities, recognize the outstanding CSR efforts of performers, and act as a platform for CSR dialogue among listed companies. Its launch will draw serious attention from all listed companies to the commercial and social benefits of CSR, as well as enhancing the global outlook of Hong Kong as an international financial center.

This Index is compiled from the CSR and sustainability information of the 50 constituent companies in the Hang Seng Index dated. It holistically assesses the performance and achievements of individual companies in their effort to be responsible and caring towards stakeholders, based on the VPI model (Values-Process-Impact), in the three major areas, namely CSR values, CSR process (comprising both CSR management and practices) and CSR impact, as well as companies’ contributions to economic, social and environmental sustainability.

In order to capture the development and performance of leading companies in the Hong Kong Stock market in terms of business sustainability, the Hong Kong Business Sustainability Index will be compiled and the updated index with the revised list of companies announced annually. This is expected to encourage listed companies to adopt and perform corporate social responsibility, and thereby achieve sustainable development and concurrent growth to the benefit of both business and society.

背景

為了增進上市公司對企業社會責任的認識,並推動業界以此作為實現企業可持續發展的營商模式,香港理工大學管理及市場學系的可持續發展管理研究中心,聯同香港社會服務聯會和香港生產力促進局,共同編制「香港企業可持續發展指數」。

可持續發展的概念作為人類社會的戰略方向已經得到了全球的關注,並正在逐步在今天的香港獲得確認。在可持續發展的思維下,工業和商業界已經開始著意地試圖尋找實現企業可持續發展的可行模式。企業可持續發展的概念已越來越多從企業對利益相關方的社會責任的角度去認識。其中基本思想是企業在業務營運過程中對利益相關群體作出責任承擔和關愛實踐,比不負社會責任和不願意關顧利益相關群體的企業,更能維持和延續其經營的生命力。企業社會責任是企業可持續發展的核心,應該與企業戰略整合並與運行實踐結合。在開展業務的過程中,企業應該考慮的不應僅是經濟利益,同時也更需要去關注社會整體利益和保護環境。從而希望有利於企業眾多的利益相關方,最終實現企業業務的持續性和長遠發展。

上市公司是一個經濟體實現企業的可持續發展的火車頭。他們在促進企業社會責任漫長的旅程中需要維持自身的動力。個別的上市公司不僅要不斷提高自身對企業社會責任管理和實踐的認識和了解,同時也要保持對企業社會責任長期的熱誠和承諾。香港企業可持續發展指數的編制用於評估在香港股票市場的龍頭上市公司實現企業可持續發展的水平,為本地及國際商界提供企業社會責任實踐的標杆,識別在企業社會責任表現優越的企業,以及作為上市公司之間企業社會責任的對話平台。指數的推出將會使到上市公司重視企業社會責任的商業和社會效益,以及強化香港作為一個國際金融中心的國際形象。

香港企業可持續發展指數是從恒生指數50間成份股公司的企業社會責任和可持續發展的信息中編制而成的。根據「價值觀-過程-影響」模式(VPI Model),在企業社會責任三大方面作評估,即其企業社會責任的價值觀、企業社會責任的過程(包括管理和實踐) 、企業社會責任的影響以及對經濟、社會和自然環境可持續發展的貢獻,從整體上去評估他們對個別利益相關方的責任承擔和關愛實踐等方面的表現和成效。

為了掌握在香港股票市場的龍頭企業在企業可持續發展的演化和表現,香港企業可持續發展指數將會根據恆生指數成份股公司的變動而每年編制。我們預計這個指數將會鼓勵上市公司採取和承擔企業社會責任,從而實現可持續發展和帶動企業社會效益之間的相互增長。
