Social Responsibilities Our reputation rests on our contribution to all the communities we operate in. An intrinsic part of this is supporting charities and other community-related activities, locally and nationally.
Our offices and our people are actively involved in their communities. Among all the others, Savills Professions Sevens has become a tradition for the Hong Kong office. This fund raising sporting event has been held annually before Christmas since 1983. Participated by companies covering the property, finance, legal, and accounting industries with Savills as the host, this exciting rugby tournament feature rival teams from the corporate world taking to the field to challenge each other all in the name of charity.
All donations and proceeds from this fun-filled event are distributed amongst a host of beneficiaries including the Hong Kong Cancer Fund, China Coast Community, Fu Hong Society, Enlighten Hong Kong, Riding for the Disabled and the David S. Davies Foundation.
We also actively participate as well as sponsor various charity and sporting events. Since 2006, the company sponsors staff to participate in the annual Standard Chartered Marathon. Being one of the top ten biggest participation groups, Savills Hong Kong received the ‘Most Supportive Group Award’ for two consecutive years in 2007 and 2008.
Sponsorships were given to Convoy Sun Hei, a top local football club playing in the First Division League, during the 2007-08 and 2008-09 seasons. We also sponsored the Hong Kong Squash Open since 2008.
We are eager to give a helping hand in times of disasters and to support those in need. Donations were made to World Vision Hong Kong for relief works in Sichuan after the powerful 7.8 magnitude earthquake in May 2008, as well as Taiwan which was badly hit by typhoon Morakot in August 2009. We also supported Sowers Action for a school project in Yunnan, and the Sedan Chair Charities Fund which supports charitable organisations that generally do not receive assistance from the Hong Kong Community Chest, Hong Kong Jockey Club or the Government.
Our property management company is keen on bringing in environmental protection practices into the lives of its staff as well as those residing at the estates under its management. Over the years, we have participated in the “used clothes recycling programme” and the “tree planting challenge” organised by Friends of the Earth.
A volunteer team (the V-Team) was formed in 2007 to serve the elderly and children. Thus far, we have collaborated with Redford Charitable Foundation and the Boys’ & Girls’ Clubs Association for a number of visits and activities.
In recognition of our community involvement and commitment as corporate citizens, Savills (Hong Kong) Limited, Savills Property Management Limited, and Savills Guardian were awarded the Caring Company logo 2008/09 by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service.
