Can you tell us about other Purpose-Led practices in your portfolio? For instance the CSR initiative with Mil Mill?
Due to the nature of our business, Tricor has a heavy reliance on paper. When I joined the company, my personal goal was to reduce, reuse and recycle more and I encouraged all business units to embrace digital tools. The next step was to recycle the waste paper that could not be avoided.
Mil Mill is Hong Kong’s first carton recycling plant and Tricor was the first corporation to partner with them significantly. Mil Mill recycles our waste paper into new paper products such as toilet rolls, kitchen towels, and tissue paper – a good example of circular economy in the corporate world.
We are now working with the building management in Kwun Tong to extend the collection of wastepaper to the whole building.
Is there anything else that you would like to share with us today?
Shared Value has a very special place in my heart and I truly believe in the ability for companies to do well by doing good. I’m delighted to have joined the SVIHK board and learned a lot from other members. It has been a pleasure working with the board, Gaëlle and the team and I look forward to another great year ahead.
