The Group is also committed to protecting and sustaining the environment through reduced consumption of electrical power, much of which is generated from the burning of carbon and other fossil fuels. In 2008, the Group launched an initiative to convert its shops to using energy saving lighting. By the end of 2013, most of the Group’s stores in South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and the Middle East converted to using energy-saving lighting.

Our “Green Team” initiates and brings together representatives from different departments to promote low carbon living. In 2013, the Green Team organized various monthly activities for staff to learn about and experience low carbon living which include recycling campaigns.
