2020-12-21 Hong Kong
Kerry Logistics Network Limited (‘Kerry Logistics Network’; Stock Code 0636.HK) is pleased to win the newly-established The Asset Jade Award, the highest award category, at The Asset ESG Corporate Awards 2020 (the ‘Awards’), for its outstanding environmental, social and governance (‘ESG’) performance and transparency. Kerry Logistics Network was previously the winner of The Asset Platinum Award for two years in a row. In addition, it has received the Best Investor Relations Team Award for the second consecutive year.
Apart from being commended for its excellence in ESG standards, commitment and practices, Kerry Logistics Network was lauded for its commitment to safeguarding the environment, employees’ health and safety while fulfilling their social responsibility to the community at large during the COVID-19 pandemic. Its investor relations team was recognised for its excellent day-to-day achievements as well as successful troubleshooting and initiatives in newer arenas such as social media and web-delivered services.
William Ma, Group Managing Director of Kerry Logistics Network, said, “We are honoured to be distinguished and promoted to the top Jade Award category in its debut year. Despite the disruptions caused by the pandemic, this year we have remained ever committed to protecting our employees’ health and safety and contributing to the communities where we served. The Asset Jade Award is a much-appreciated recognition and encouragement that drives us to redouble our efforts in ESG performance and transparency in our operations going forward.”
Organised annually by the regional financial magazine The Asset since 2000, the Awards are conferred based on criteria such as financial performance, management, corporate governance, social and environmental responsibility and investor relations. The Awards are the longest running and the most prestigious ESG awards programme in Asia. The Asset Jade Award made its debut this year specifically to recognise ESG performance and transparency over and above that normally accorded to Platinum Award winners.
