15 July 2020, Hong Kong SAR, China – Marco Polo Hotels – Hong Kong is proud to have attained the recognition of “Caring Company” for each of its three Hong Kong hotels: Marco Polo Hongkong, Gateway and Prince Hotels, for the fifth consecutive year.
Launched by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS) in 2002, the Caring Company Scheme aims to cultivate good corporate citizenship. It is specifically geared to build a cohesive society by promoting strategic partnerships among business and social service partners, inspiring corporate social responsibility through caring for the community, employees and the environment.
“Caring for our guests, associates, community and environment is at the heart of everything we do,” said Mr. Dalip Singh, General Manager of Marco Polo Hotels – Hong Kong. “We are delighted to receive this recognition for our three Hong Kong hotels and look forward to continuing our contribution to our society.”
Marco Polo Hotels – Hong Kong initiates charity activities in its local communities as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility programme. Recent events have included the Job Tasting Programme and Career Exploration Day under ‘Project WeCan’, founded by Wharf Holdings, providing resources to less-privileged secondary school students with the goal of empowering them to pursue promising studies and future careers.
As a long-term partner with the Children’s Cancer Foundation, apart from the annual ‘Christmas Dreams Come True’ charity programme, the hotel earlier this year delivered surgical masks for adult and kids, handmade fabric masks, together with some hand sanitisers for virus precaution. In addition, hundreds of colouring books were designed, produced and sent to their kids, keeping the children stay positive in these difficult times.
Other collaborations have included the Great Chef of Hong Kong and Little Master Chef class, in partnership with Heep Hong Society, and food donations through Foodlink Foundation. In addition, the hotel cooperated with Soap Recycling, a non-profit organisation that works with the hospitality industry to collect and process lightly-used soap bars and bottled amenities. 60 hotel staff took part in the recycling process, distributing recycled soaps to disadvantaged communities in Asia this year.
