  • Organization Profile
  • CLP was founded in Hong Kong in 1901, at a time when electricity was still a novelty worldwide. Today we power millions of homes and businesses across the Asia Pacific regions. In Hong Kong, we operate a vertically-integrated electricity supply business providing a highly-reliable supply of electricity to 80% of the city’s population. Outside Hong Kong, we invest in the energy sector in Mainland China, India, Southeast Asia, Taiwan and Australia. Our business includes power generation, transmission and distribution, and electricity and gas retail activities. Our goal is to meet Asia-Pacific's energy challenge in a sustainable manner from one generation to the next.
  • Environment and Sustainability Highlights
  • Our goal is to be the leading responsible energy provider in the Asia-Pacific region, from one generation to the next. In order to achieve this target, we must operate in a way that is conducive to the long-term viability of our business activities. We recognise that our business will thrive only in communities that are healthy, strong and resilient, whether from a social, economic or environmental perspective. It is therefore in our interest to operate under a set of corporate values and within a business model that contributes to the sustainable development of the communities in which we operate.
