In preparing our 2014/15 and 2015/16 sustainability reports, we conducted extensive stakeholder engagement as part of the materiality assessment process. Over 600 individuals were engaged through focus groups, interviews and online surveys to help determine sustainability issues that are important for HKIA. Building on the previous materiality assessments, and taking into account AAHK’s on-going engagement with stakeholders, we reviewed and consolidated the sustainability issues to be covered in this year’s report.
Please refer to the ‘Correlation between AAHK’s most important sustainability issues and GRI Standards’ in the GRI Content Index section for the definition of each material issue.
