HK Electric Investments is the first fixed single investment trust listed in Hong Kong with a focus on the power industry. Our principal operating subsidiary, The Hongkong Electric Company, Limited (HK Electric), commenced operations in 1890 and is one of the longest-established utility companies in the world.
Over our long history, we have consistently supported Hong Kong's economic journey by offering safe, reliable and affordable electricity while minimising the impact of our operations on the environment as we strive to deliver sustainable growth in long-term value to our investors.
HK Electric Investments believes that open and on-going communication with our stakeholders is central to our operation and development. We engage different stakeholders through a variety of channels and stakeholder suggestions and feedback are highly valued in our decision making process as we strive for continuous improvements.
Underpinned by its core value of "Pursuit of Excellence", HK Electric is committed to delivering excellent services and supply reliability to our customers. We have been providing a world-class supply reliability of over 99.999% since 1997 and all our service standards are achieved or even surpassed every year.
To satisfy the aspirations from the community, and in support of Government’s energy and environmental policy objectives, HK Electric has launched a suite of "Smart Power Services".
HK Electric is one of the longest-established power companies in the world. The Company has a world-class record of providing a highly reliable electricity supply to Hong Kong and Lamma islands at a reasonable and affordable price.
HK Electric Investments is committed to meeting the long-term energy needs and supporting the sustainable development of the community we serve. To do this, we focus not only on powering Hong Kong with a world-class electricity supply, but also on the way we deliver it and the impacts it has on the environment.
HK Electric aspires to be an employer of choice. We have policies and systems in place to attract talents and through continuous training and development, nurture them for a fulfilling career. We offer competitive remuneration, an ideal workplace and comprehensive wellness programmes for our employees while maintaining regular and open dialogues with them.
Adhering to our focuses on environmental protection, industry development and elderly care, HK Electric donates to numerous charitable and non-profit-making organisations, and sponsors meaningful projects to benefit the community and people from all walks of life. These include programmes in support of charity, education, disaster relief, community well-being and environmental protection, etc.
On top of making corporate donations, the Company also encourages its staff to donate for charity through supporting fund-raising initiatives such as the Community Chest's Walks for Millions, Employee Contribution Programme, Skip Lunch Day, Dress Casual Day, etc.
The HK Electric Centenary Trust provides financial support to secondary school students and elderly services. Since its establishment in 1990 to commemorate the Company's 100th year of service in Hong Kong, the trust has been giving out scholarships via the Government's Student Financial Assistance Agency to secondary school students with outstanding academic performance and in need of financial aid.
The trust also provides funding to support the U3A Network of Hong Kong to encourage local retirees to pursue life-long learning and volunteerism.
The Lamma Trust was established to improve the environment and other facilities on Lamma Island where our Lamma Power Station and Lamma Winds are situated. It has supported the construction of two pavilions in Southern Lamma; the extension of the Mou Tat Wan pier; the reconstruction of a country trail near Hung Shing Ye beach, and the redevelopment of the Tin Hau Temple in Sok Kwu Wan. The Trust also supported the construction of Yung Shue Wan Heritage and Cultural Showroom under the Signature Project Scheme, as its latest contribution to the Lamma community.
