Commitment to Sustainability and Community
There is an inextricable link between our planet and our health, and delivering healthcare has a significant environmental impact. The healthcare industry must reduce its environmental footprint while protecting and regenerating the planet. Bupa and QHMS recognise the need to mitigate this impact and are actively collaborating with their partners to educate, advocate, and swiftly effect change. They contribute to the communities by engaging with local and community partners.

Bupa's Global Initiative - Healthy Cities
Bupa's global initiative, Healthy Cities, encourages people to become more active to protect their health and the environment. Bupa Hong Kong launched Healthy Cities in 2023, promoting step challenges among participants. Additionally, Bupa Hong Kong sponsored RunOurCity's 2023 STREETATHON. To reinforce the connection between planetary health and physical health, Bupa Hong Kong has partnered with local start-up Clearbot on a marine waste clean-up initiative as part of its commitment to Mission Regenerate.

QHMS's Dedication to Corporate Social Responsibility
Bupa's healthcare division, QHMS, is deeply committed to Hong Kong and places significant emphasis on corporate social responsibility. Over the years, they have actively taken responsibility for caring for the environment and the community. In response to the ageing population and healthcare needs of the public, they organise various health volunteering services and health education programmes for the elderly and the community, raising awareness of disease prevention and demonstrating their commitment to be a healthcare partner.

The HKQAA ESG Connect mark awarded to Bupa and QHMS denotes a milestone in their leadership and ongoing contributions to the ESG field. They look forward to future collaborations with more organisations, collectively advancing long-term sustainability development and creating a better world for future generations.
