(Hong Kong, 23 May 2012) – K. Wah International Holdings Limited (“KWIH” or the “Group”) (stock code: 0173), a company with untiring passion for the sustainable development of the society, has been sparing no efforts in its care for the environment and its finite resources. To further its green concepts and practices, the Group has become a Saturn Partner of Friends of the Earth (HK)’s “Earth Partner” Programme 2012-13, with the aim of creating a better environment with its staff.

As a supporter of“Earth Partner”Programme, KWIH furthers its green practices by organizing various environmental care campaigns such as donating staff’s old PCs to charitable organizations

This year’s campaign, themed “Greenability 360”, was kicked off on “Earth Day” 22 April 2012, with a series of green activities in relation to energy, air, waste and water preservation launched by Friends of the Earth. As its Saturn Partner, KWIH echoes by initiating various programmes with the purpose to reduce waste and save energy.

To kick start, the Group collected staff’s old PCs while calling for their contribution of personal computers and printers for donation to charitable organizations through Friends of the Earth, as means to recycle and reduce waste. The Group also collects used printer ink cartridges and paper while promoting energy-saving initiatives like turning off unnecessary lighting and electronic appliances, with the hope of infusing the concept of green living to daily practices. Looking ahead, KWIH will constantly seek opportunities to contribute to a better and sustainable environment by participating or organizing environmental care activities including workshops and tree planting.
