HONG KONG's Kerry Logistics Network was honoured this week as the Hong Kong Corporate Governance Excellence Award winner in 2018 from the Chamber of Hong Kong Listed Companies and the Centre for Corporate Governance and Financial Policy of the Hong Kong Baptist University.
In a gala ceremony at Hong Kong's Grand Hyatt, the occasion marked the second time Kerry Logistics has won the accolade since 2015.
The award confers recognition to listed companies for their outstanding commitment to shareholder rights, compliance, integrity, fairness, responsibility, accountability, transparency, board independence and leadership, corporate social responsibility, and exhibiting a holistic approach to business ethics.
Recipients were first assessed by an expert review group on their corporate governance and/or sustainability performance, and then selected by an award judging panel comprising leading members of the securities and investment markets and the area of corporate governance based on an interview with the company's core corporate governance team.
Kerry Logistics was cited for its diversified board and notable initiatives, including an effective stakeholder programme which has been implemented to understand external concerns for aiding in the formulation of its business and development strategies.
Said Kerry Logistics managing director William Ma: 'We are delighted to be recognised once again. Accountability and transparency are the watchwords of our corporate value; we do our utmost to enhance corporate value and safeguard shareholders' interests and rights.'
