  • DKSH contributes to reducing Hong Kong’s food waste

    DKSH contributes to reducing Hong Kong’s food waste

    DKSH Hong Kong once again partnered with Food Angel to support their mission to provide people in need with healthy and nutritious meals consisting of quality food, which would otherwise be wasted. The Food Angel organization provided volunteers from DKSH with the surplus food, which they collected from different sectors of the food industry. This food would usually be disposed of as waste, even if it was still good to eat. The DKSH Hong Kong team then prepared nutritious meals in the Food Angel kitchen, before distributing it to the underprivileged. This volunteering initiative was an efficient way of not only reducing food waste, but also giving back to people in need in the local community.

  • Growing communities through growing food

    Growing communities through growing food

    What would our city look like it we all started growing food right on our doorsteps? In January 2018, Eats, Shoots & Roots launched a "Sayur in the City" project and established an urban farm to serve as an educational space for YWCA's Vocational Training Opportunity Center as well as to educate urbanites and visitors about local agriculture. In March, 15 DKSH volunteers completed the last link to this green ecosystem with the construction of a composting area to convert organic waste on-site to be used for the urban farm. We were also given a crash course on the various composting theories. YWCA's urban edible garden can now sustain itself financially through its produce.

Our approach to sustainability is to leverage our extensive network to further economic and social progress in the markets where we are present, operating at all times with integrity, trust and reliability.
