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.
Partnering with nine elderly service agencies on Hong Kong and Lamma islands, HK Electric extends its care to single elders through the "CAREnJOY for the Elderly" (CAREnJOY) programme.
CAREnJOY encourages single elders to reach out to the community and promotes mutual support in the neighbourhood. Senior citizens are recruited and trained as ambassadors to encourage single elders to join local service centres, so that the latter are connected to community support and know where to seek help if needed.
Visits to single elders and district-based electrical safety talks cum gatherings are held on Hong Kong and Lamma islands. Material aids in the form of daily necessities are provided during monthly visits. HK Electric volunteers also leverage their expertise to check out electrical installations in the elders' homes, and to share electrical safety and efficiency tips.
Since 2019, the theme of dementia prevention has been added to the programme in support of the Government's efforts to enhance public awareness of the problem among our aging population. During home visits and district-based talks, senior citizens were taught to do exercises good for the brain and provided with tips on how to prevent dementia.
While our regular elderly care and community outreach initiatives were mostly suspended in 2020 due to the COVID pandemic, we continued to extend care and connect with the elderly through creative means. Throughout the year, our volunteers reached out to 141 single elders via phone call under the "CAREnJOY Call-to Care" service. We also provided useful information on health and electrical safety in the form of text messages to about 6,100 single elders every week. With the pandemic still prevailing in 2021, a new initiative "CAREnJOY Go-Go-Go" is organised to provide material aids to single elders by delivering giftbags with items for preventing COVID and dementia.
The CAREnJOY GO-GO-GO electric car, a new member of HK Electric's EV fleet, will tour around Hong Kong Island in 2021 to extend care to the elderly.
In 2019, CAREnJOY supports Social Welfare Department's Dementia Friendly Community Campaign and help promote dementia prevention during home visits and safety talks.
During district-based talks, senior citizens will learn the exercises good for the brain, and will receive tips on how to prevent dementia.
