- CSR Management System governance structure
CSR Management System
Building on the above governance structure, a CSR Management System comprising implementation procedures, CSR guidelines and management system documents has been developed and adopted to further strengthen our management of CSR performance and CSR impacts arising from our operations.
The CSR Management System has been formulated with reference to the ISO 26000 Guidance on Social Responsibility and the ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems standard and includes elements that are relevant to HKEX's business nature and operations. Accordingly, a CSR Manual which defines the CSR Management System and provides managerial direction and technical guidance for the implementation of CSR best practices has been established and made available to all employees via the HKEX Intranet. The CSR Manual is reviewed and revised by the CSR Working Group where and when necessary to support the on-going development of HKEX’s CSR commitment and initiatives in the changing business environment. Specific training on the implementation of the CSR Management System has been provided to the CSR Working Group and other representatives of each Division and Department within HKEX.
