Towngas was selected among 200 corporations in the Greater China area to take the top spot in the Greater China Business Sustainability Index (GCBSI). Towngas also placed first in the Greater Bay Area Business Sustainability Index (GBABSI) and Hong Kong Business Sustainability Index (HKBSI).
The Centre for Business Sustainability under the Business School of The Chinese University of Hong Kong hosted the inaugural GCBSI assessing 200 constituent companies of the Hang Seng Index, FTSE TWSE Taiwan 50 Index, Shenzhen 100 Index and Shanghai Stock Exchange SSE 50 A Share Index in order to recognise those demonstrating excellent sustainable development performance. Towngas has been ranked first on the GBABSI for two consecutive years and on the HKBSI for three consecutive years. Winning three awards this year affirms the approval enjoyed by the Group for its business sustainability and corporate social responsibility efforts.
Going forward, Towngas will continue to shoulder its corporate social responsibility and realise sustainable business development through the application of advanced operation models.
