CLP, one of the largest investor-operators of power assets in the Asia-Pacific region, has published its 2016 Sustainability Report showing a detailed picture of its performance on how it manages financial and other capitals to create value for its stakeholders over the long term.

The Report is prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards and GRI G4 Electric Utilities Sector Disclosures. In addition, it satisfies the “comply or explain” provisions as well as “recommended disclosures” of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange ESG Reporting Guide. As CLP continues to work towards a more integrated reporting approach, the Report is structured according to the six capitals summarised in the Capital sections of the Integrated Annual report. The Report also identifies where its strategies and activities align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

It highlights three global trends that are most relevant to the company’s business: climate change, technological breakthrough, demographic and social change. The 2016 Report also discusses the potential impacts or implications of the global trends in terms of emerging and business-specific risks and opportunities.

CLP presents how it creates value for its key stakeholders in a video. Some of the highlights in 2016 include:

  • Capital Providers – Group operating earnings increased 7.1% to HK$12,334 million; delivered total dividends of HK$2.80/share, an increase from 2015; and received improved credit ratings
