BNY Mellon has been awarded as a Caring Company in Hong Kong for the fourth consecutive year.
Launched by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service, the award acknowledges BNY Mellon’s continuous dedication in caring for the community, its employees, and the environment.
Nominated by its charity partner, Helping Hand, BNY Mellon employees in Hong Kong volunteered nearly 400 hours across initiatives organized by various charities in 2016. BNY Mellon has been supporting Helping Hand to meet the emerging housing and caring needs of senior citizens in Hong Kong. The annual visit to Helping Hand’s housing unit for the underprivileged elderly community is one of the key volunteering events BNY Mellon employees organize in Hong Kong.
“BNY Mellon’s vision is to improve lives through investing. As an engine for the financial markets, we help drive global growth and prosperity, and we are committed to creating an inclusive, sustainable world that encourages people to succeed and economies to thrive,” said Jyoti Chopra, Head of Global Citizenship and Sustainability, BNY Mellon. “Being awarded for the fourth consecutive year is a testament to our commitment to enabling positive change in the local communities in which we operate.”
BNY Mellon’s global corporate philanthropy program enables positive change through philanthropic donations and social investments. The company also offers employees three days of Paid Volunteer Time every year and matches donation to charities for employee volunteer time and fundraising efforts.
