Everbright International Selected as a Constituent Member of the Hang Seng Corporate Sustainability Benchmark IndexChina Everbright International Limited ("Everbright International" or the "Group") is pleased to announce that it has been selected as a constituent member of the Hang Seng Corporate Sustainability Benchmark Index on 5 Sep 2011. This reflects the recognition of the Group's outstanding performance in corporate sustainable development, including environmental, as well as corporate social responsibility and corporate governance.
The Hang Seng Corporate Sustainability Benchmark Index is determined by a very stringent selection process with high standards for a corporation's contribution to sustainable development, including environmental, corporate social responsibility and corporate governance criteria. A total of 68 corporations have been selected as constituent members of Hang Seng Corporate Sustainability Benchmark Index and they are mostly constituent members of the Hang Seng Index. This achievement not only demonstrates the finance industry's wide recognition of the Group's contribution to environmental and corporate social responsibility, but also represents that the standard of its corporate governance is comparable to that of a Hang Seng Index constituent member.
Mr. Chen Xiaoping, Chief Executive Officer of Everbright International, said, "We are pleased that Everbright International has been selected as a constituent member of the Hang Seng Corporate Sustainability Benchmark Index. This represents an important recognition of the Group's years of efforts in all aspects of developing environmental protection business, making contribution to the society and continually enhancing corporate governance. Everbright International will further develop our environmental protection business, including environmental energy, environmental water, alternative energy and environmental protection equipment manufacturing businesses so as to make contribution to the environmental protection and the sustainable development in China and around the world".
