HWL's Environmental, Social and Governance ("ESG") Committee, chaired by an Executive Director with representatives from key departments of the Company including Human Resources, Corporate Affairs, Information Services, Management Services and Legal, focuses on staff development and training, community involvement and the environment in 2014. Several campaigns to reduce waste and encourage more efficient use of energy over the past few years have generated satisfactory results. Corporate governance workshops initiated by the Committee has also been well-received and found wide-support across the Group. The ESG Committee will continue to formulate guidelines and spearhead initiatives that can be implemented on a company-wide level.
