Lenovo Bags Several ESG awards Displaying its Commitment to Corporate Governance and Sustainability
Lenovo Group Limited
For its environmental, social, and governance (ESG) achievements, Lenovo Group has been honoured by various top Hong Kong-based organisations with multiple awards.
The organisations include the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA), the Chamber of Hong Kong Listed Companies (CHKLC), and the Centre for Corporate Governance and Financial Policy (CCGFP) of Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU), as well as the Community Investment and Inclusion Fund (CIIF) of the Home and Youth Affairs Bureau in collaboration with the Hong Kong Quality Assurance Agency (HKQAA).
These awards recognise Lenovo's work around the world to maintain high standards of corporate governance and sustainability. This is part of the company's core value to build a brighter, more sustainable future for customers, colleagues, communities, and the planet.
Early this month, the HKICPA gave Lenovo the Gold Award in the Most Sustainable Companies and Organisations (MSCO) section (H-share companies and other Mainland enterprise category) of the Best Corporate Governance and ESG Awards.
This was in recognition of Lenovo's efforts to reach a very high level of standard in both Corporate Governance and ESG and to drive integration and implementation of these two areas into the company's strategy and operations. This is the tenth year in a row that the HKICPA has given awards to Lenovo.
Also, on December 13, CHKLC and CCGFP of HKBU gave Lenovo the Corporate Governance Excellence Award (Category 1: Hang Seng Index Constituent Companies). This gives listed companies recognition and prestige for their strong commitments to shareholder rights, compliance, integrity, fairness, responsibility, accountability, transparency, board independence, and leadership.
Lenovo was also acknowledged in the "SCESG Awards," presented by the CIIF on December 14, to honour Hong Kong-listed firms for their efforts in incorporating social capital concepts into their ESG and sustainability policies. For the first time since 2012, this award is in conjunction with the HKQAA and honours the 20th anniversary of the CIIF in addition to its biannual "Social Capital Builder Awards".
“We remain steadfast on our ESG journey as we learn to navigate the world and events that challenge even the strongest organisations,” said John Cerretani, Lenovo’s Vice President, Deputy General Counsel and Chief Corporate Responsibility Officer. "At Lenovo, our mission to make technology smarter for everyone is built into every part of our business and drives all of our ESG efforts. We have proven to be a united, dependable organisation that rises to the challenge and conquers difficulty.”
