  3. 3. WHAT does it mean to Swire? HOW is it being implemented across the business? WHY is it important to Swire? WHY – WHAT - HOW Sustainable development is synonymous with the underlying philosophy that has driven Swire throughout the last 200 years – it is part of who we are and how we operate. We pride ourselves on being forward looking, original, with a commitment to operational excellence. Sustainable development is an opportunity for: INNOVATION, GROWTH & EFFICIENCY Sustainable development is the integration of considerations into all dimensions of business and management practices in order to create long term value. ECONOMIC, ENVIRONMENTAL & SOCIAL We manage SD under five pillars: ENVIRONMENT; HEALTH & SAFETY; COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT; STAFF; WORKING WITH OTHERS
  4. 4. ‘… if the environmentally “clean” way of doing something is more expensive…, we should always, regardless of mandatory legislation, have a close look at the overall feasibility of adopting such a practice, both from the point of view of general public good and enlightened self interest’ ‘As the Group journeys towards its third century, however, new challenges will inevitably arise: alongside an abiding focus on nurturing their own staff, on practical innovation and of course on commercial viability, our existing businesses must adapt to a world in which, quite rightly, everything that they do will be judged by its impact upon the environment and the community. Such an atmosphere will lead to change. Beyond such change, however, we are also committed to invest in new industries which are themselves part of the coming environmental revolution — indeed, we have already taken our first few steps along this path.’ Barnaby Swire, 2015 It’s part of who we are, and how we operate. Swire's motto is "Esse Quam Videri" meaning "To be, rather than to seem to be".
