Care for the community, rethink for sustainability

HAECO ITM staff have been volunteering at Food Angel, a Hong Kong NGO that redistributes surplus food to the elderly, vulnerable and disadvantaged in the community. The team spent an inspiring afternoon at one of Food Angel’s kitchens, helping volunteer drivers prepare food and pack over 1,900 lunchboxes.


“It was an honour for me to assist in such a meaningful initiative, one small action that means such a lot to those in need; I look forward to taking part in similar volunteer events again,” said Tony Cheung, HAECO ITM’s Administrative Executive.


“A very humbling experience and a reminder of how fortunate we are. At HAECO, we prioritise our time to serve our community - giving each other hope and support,” said William Arblaster, HAECO ITM’s Executive General Manager.


Sustainability can be practiced in many ways. In July, HAECO landing Gear Services received enthusiastic support from staff for its Idle Clothes Donation Day. Riding on the success of a similar campaign organised by the Human Resources Department, this company-wide activity received around 400 pieces of quality, surplus clothing. The clothes – all in as-new condition - were packed in 15 boxes and delivered free of charge by China Post to remote villages in Fujian Province, where they were distributed to needy families.


This activity promoted the good practice of recycling unwanted resources, as well as reducing consumption in a world dominated by fast fashion. It also encouraged employees to be more attentive to and supportive of the basic needs and wellbeing of disadvantaged members of society.
