  • Environment and Sustainability Highlights
  • Wheelock contributes toward building a healthy and sustainable community through embedding sustainability in its business operation.

    In 2019, the Company continued to elevate actions in the four UNSDGs which were most aligned with its operations: Quality Education, Decent Work and Economic Growth, Climate Action, and Sustainable Cities and Communities. On green building, Building Information Modelling (BIM) was adopted across all new projects under development to facilitate project management and minimize waste generation. All new projects under development have undergone Life Cycle Assessment, and 100% of construction floor area was certified with, or under application for, green building certifications. 26 BEAM Plus or LEED® green building certificates were attained as at the end of 2019. 

    In the Company’s headquarters, continuous measures were adopted to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, successfully reducing energy intensity by 34% in 2019 (with 2015 as base year) and attaining the Platinum Label in the LOOP Labelling Scheme organized by WWF-Hong Kong.

    On the community front, Wheelock is devoted to provide continuing support to key longstanding programmes for social good, such as The Community Chest Wheelock Swim for Millions and the “Business-In-Community” initiative Project WeCan, which is benefitting more than 70,000 secondary school students. At the end of 2019, Wheelock Properties announced peppercorn leases to two NGOs with the intention to provide approximately 2,000 units of transitional housing to address community needs.
