Sino Caring Friends took part in planting 6,000 saplings

Committed to environmental protection, Sino Group supports and participates in a range of activities to raise public awareness of green issues. Echoing the United Nations, which declared 2010 as the International Year of Biodiversity, the Group sponsored "Island District Healthy City Tree Planting Festival – Green Lantau", in which Sino Caring Friends and family members contributed to a greener Hong Kong.

During the event, 40 Sino Caring Friends volunteers joined more than 300 participants from Islands District middle schools, co-organisers and sponsors to plant 6,000 indigenous saplings on Nei Lak Shan, Ngong Ping, Lantau Island. This activity was hosted by the Islands Healthy City Working Group under the Tourism, Agriculture, Fisheries and Environmental Hygiene Committee of the Islands District Council and was supported by various organisations.

Sino Group and Sino Property Services have actively promoted environmental protection over the years. In addition to developing properties with environmentally friendly features and implementing green property management practices, the Group has organised a wide range of green educational programmes such as the "Sino Green Academy – Students' Green Ambassador Programme", the "Greenovation Challenge" recycling design competition and an organic farm tour educational programme.
