Environmental, Social and Governance
We believe that sustainability is fundamental to the success of our business. Our philosophy is to create long-term value for our stakeholders that is in line with the sustainable and responsible growth of our business. We aspire to be a responsible corporate citizen and we believe that transparency and accountability are important foundations for building trust with our stakeholders.
Our employees are our important asset and the key to our sustainable growth. None of our achievements would have been possible without the great people who work at Kerry Logistics. We are committed to creating value for our employees through rewarding careers, an embracing workplace and a healthy work-life balance.
As a major logistics service provider in Asia serving international brands, the Group endeavours to create value for our customers and help them build their competitive edge through our trusted and innovative solutions.
We work closely with a wide spectrum of suppliers such as airlines, shipping companies and landlords of leased logistics facilities to support our strong distribution network which connects with more than 50 countries and territories. We continue to strengthen the sustainability of our supply chain performance through building a collaborative and win-win relationship with our suppliers.
We operate our business with integrity, transparency and accountability. Our Global Anti-bribery Policy is well conveyed to employees through mandatory induction training. The Board sets a standard of zero tolerance to any forms of bribery, corruption, extortion, money laundering or fraud. Malpractices are to be detected by effective monitoring and management control in place. Meanwhile, our Whistleblowing Policy enables employees and third parties to report observed and suspected misconducts, irregularities and malpractices in a confidential manner. Reported cases will be followed up in a timely manner; confirmed cases will be reported to the Audit and Compliance Committee and the management.
Operating with an asset ownership model for greater service reliability and flexibility, we recognise that it is our responsibility to manage our environmental footprint and in particular, for self-owned logistics facilities. We work to make our operations greener through managing emissions, optimising the use of resources and protecting the natural environment and ecosystems that we rely on.
Kerry Logistics has committed itself to serving the community by leveraging its talents, resources and networks. Our community involvement focus in 2016 demonstrates our care towards the youth, the elderly, the underprivileged and the environment. We contributed to different charitable organisations and events and in 2016 spent 922 employee volunteering hours to create values for our communities.
