KERRY Logistics Network Ltd has clinched the Junzi Corporation Award presented by the Hang Seng University of Hong Kong (HSUHK), which recognises the company's adherence to the highest standards of business ethics.
The logistics provider also collected the iMoney Corporate Governance Award, jointly conferred by HSUHK and Hong Kong financial publication iMoney, reported AJOT.
Organised for the ninth year, the award ceremony acknowledges corporations that value business ethics and "Junzi's Five Virtues" of benevolence, rightness, propriety, wisdom and trustworthiness - based on the Confucian concept, as well as western ethical theories of business that emphasise integrity and fairness.
Kerry Logistics group managing director William Ma said: "We are delighted by the honour HSUHK has granted us. We always strictly abide by the highest ethical code in all of our operations."
The company said it operates its business with integrity, transparency and accountability, and has committed itself to serving the community by leveraging its talents, resources and networks. Its community involvement focus demonstrates its care towards the youth, the underprivileged and the environment.
To raise awareness and identify opportunities for improvement, Kerry Logistics has established and implemented environmental management systems accredited to the ISO14001 standard, and supported community initiatives run by different charitable organisations.
