A two-day innovative event generating over 200 ideas for tackling real estate & retail sustainability challenges, held one month after the signature of the pioneering sustainability partnershipHONG KONG, SHANGHAI AND PARIS – Media OutReach – 1 December 2022 – Hang Lung Properties (SEHK stock code: 00101) (“Hang Lung”) and Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (“LVMH”) completed an innovative and ambitious Real Estate and Climate Forum (“The Forum”) on November 24 and 25, including about 200 participants from both Groups and their partners. The Forum took place one month after the signing of a first-of-its-kind sustainability partnership agreement by the two Groups. Under the agreement, Hang Lung and LVMH are committed to achieving progress in sustainability together to the end of 2025.
Hang Lung and LVMH together designed a highly calibrated process to shift mindsets, engender productive discussions, and inculcate a sense of shared ownership among the changemakers. The process included:
- A personal invitation from the sustainability departments of each organization;
- Provision of new learning materials in the 12 topic areas;
- The requirement to complete a quiz to set a common baseline for discussions;
- Asking each changemaker to submit three ideas;
- Ranking one another’s ideas anonymously;
- Convening in groups of eight for facilitated discussion of selected ideas; and
- Sharing of key discoveries back to the wider community as the basis for action.
Mr. Adriel Chan, Hang Lung Properties Vice Chair and Chair of Sustainability Steering Committee, said: “It was only a month ago that we signed our partnership with LVMH, and we have wasted no time in moving forward. We are together creating innovations in how to tackle sustainability problems, because business-as-usual has proven inadequate. The two Groups are working together with transparency and trust and we look forward to sharing the results of our momentum in our Common Charter early next year.”
“Our sustainability goals embedded in our LIFE 360 program require true collaboration between the stakeholders. As demonstrated through our Forum, the private sector can find new strategies of collective intelligence, for bolder results towards carbon neutrality. We believe that important innovations can be found not only in technology, but also in this domain of the design of win-win situations,” commented Ms. Hélène Valade, LVMH Environmental Development Director.
