For decades, The Nature Conservancy has recognized that the private sector has an important role to play in advancing our conservation mission. Businesses in China and even far from our shores have a significant impact on our climate, our food, our air, and our water here in Hong Kong.
Increasingly, businesses are interested in making their practices more environmentally friendly and investing in conservation—for the good of their customers, and for the sustainability of their industries. The Nature Conservancy works with top local and global companies around the world who share our vision for a sustainable planet. From improving business practices and raising awareness for conservation issues, to supporting important science and conservation and policy initiatives, each engagement has, at its core, the potential to help us achieve our goal of protecting lands and waters on which all life depends.
Over the years, we have worked with thousands of companies around the world that cover a wide range of sectors, including Pepsi Co, Disney, IBM, Goldman Sachs, Walmart and Cargill. In Asia Pacific, we have worked with companies such as Neutrogena in Australia and Rio Tinto in Mongolia. In Hong Kong, our corporate partners have included Dragonair, Pacific Coffee Company, FORTUNE China, HSBC Private Bank, the Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Hong Kong Commercial Radio, Moet Hennessy Asia Pacific, Time Asia, Sun Hung Kai Properties and the Hong Kong Airport Authority.
