About Hong Kong Green Awards
The Hong Kong Green Awards was first organised and staged by the Green Council in 2010 with the goal of formally identifying and recognising companies with exceptional performance on green purchasing and/or green management. It is an extraordinary internal audit tool for enterprises to inspect the environmental performance.
By participating in the awards, companies can re-examine the compliance of various procedures in their daily operations with environmental requirements. Having more stringent evaluation criteria than the law regulatory requirements, corporates can further establish and improve the environmental management system.
