For 50 years, Swire Properties has adopted, advocated and adhered to a philosophy of responsible development. We are committed to operating in an environmentally, socially and economically responsible manner across all aspects of our business.
In 2016, we introduced our SD vision to clearly articulate our direction:

To be the leading sustainable development performer in our industry globally by 2030

In the same year, we formulated our SD 2030 Strategy to implement this SD vision. This strategy has helped us build our SD capability and has ensured that SD considerations are part of all our operations and business decisions.
Our SD 2030 Strategy is built on five strategic pillars: Places, People, Partners, Performance (Environment) and Performance (Economic) (“the Pillars” or “Pillar”).
SD 2030 is premised on a creative mindset of innovation and experimentation and promoted through communication and engagement.
Places are at the heart of, and central to, accomplishing our SD 2030 Strategy.
Through effective placemaking and long-term placekeeping, we aim to continue to transform the places in which we invest so as to create value, whilst retaining their character, supporting communities and enhancing people's lives.
Focus areas for Places:
The contributions of our employees are indispensable to our success.
We aim to create an environment where our employees will be healthier, happier and more productive. We invest in our employees and provide rewarding career paths so as to develop a diverse and industry-leading team.
Focus areas for People:
Our business partners are crucial to the realisation of our SD 2030 Strategy.
We aim to continue to develop long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with our business partners and other key parties so as to improve our environmental, social and economic performance.
Focus areas for Partners:
Performance (Environment)
As a leading property developer, we are committed to building and managing our developments sustainably.
We aim to continue to design, construct and manage high-quality developments that contribute positively to the environment and the communities in which we operate.
Focus areas for Performance (Environment):
Performance (Economic)
We believe that long-term value creation depends on the sustainable development of our business.
We aim to deliver sustainable economic performance coupled with good corporate governance and high ethical standards.
Focus areas for Performance (Economic):
