Sustainability When we help the world in which we operate to thrive, so do we. SwireTHRIVE

Swire has stood the test of time by always looking ahead and taking the right decisions for the long term. The world is facing the most pressing environmental challenges of our time, and we are committed to being part of the solution.


Swire has a longstanding commitment to sustainable development. As a business, we aim to create lasting value for our shareholders, and we recognise that our success depends on thriving people and communities and a thriving natural environment.

For more than 200 years, we have looked ahead and taken the right decisions for the long term. It is why our business has stood the test of time. Today, this
approach is more relevant than ever. The challenges we face today range from resource scarcity and climate change, to health and inequality. How we choose to respond to these challenges will define the future of Swire.

Swire group’s Sustainability Strategy, SwireTHRIVE, aims to mitigate operational risk and build longterm resilience by driving higher standards, greater efficiency, and increased innovation in five key areas. These are Climate, Waste, Water, People and Communities.

Swire Bulk’s Sustainable Development strategy is fully aligned with the Swire group’s sustainability strategy and covers other areas which are material to our own Company. We have aligned them across three focus areas:

Thriving People
