Corporate Social Responsibilities
Melco International has been committed to Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives that pledge to make a difference to local communities we have deep roots in; youths whose lives we care about; and the environment our future depends upon.
Over the years, more than 1,685,000 children, youths, physically challenged individuals, and their in-need families in Hong Kong, Macau, and Mainland China have benefited from the corporate social responsibility programs supported by Melco International. With our three core CSR pillars: Youth Development, Environment and Education, and the objective of building a sustainable future and well-being for the next generations in Asia, Melco International actively works with charities and non-profit organizations to provide educational opportunities, practical vocational trainings, and programs alike to support disadvantaged children and youths. As an environmentally responsible corporation, Melco International supports green education efforts by NGO partners to enlighten our next generation on the importance of environmental protection. Internally, we closely monitor our waste, carbon emissions and use of resources. Melco International also sets carbon reduction, energy saving and recycling targets, and encourages staff members to contribute to such goals.
“Caring for our community” is a part of Melco Group’s corporate culture. Our staff members are encouraged to reach out and contribute to the communities where we live and work in. Melco launched its Volunteer Incentive Scheme in 2009, as a means of reward and appreciation for staff volunteers who give back to the community through participating in voluntary events organized by the Group.
Our continuous commitment has been widely recognized over the years. Melco International has been selected for inclusion in the Hang Seng Corporate Sustainability Index Series since 2013 based on its corporate social responsibility performance, awarded the Best CSR Award by The Corporate Governance Asia Magazine since 2013 and by FinanceAsia Magazine since 2009, the President’s Award by The Community Chest since 2006, Hong Kong Corporate Citizenship Awards by Hong Kong Productivity Council since 2012 and a corporate member of WWF Hong Kong since 2007. In 2015, Melco International was awarded the 10 Years Plus Caring Company by The Hong Kong Council of Social Service.
