The Awards are open to all companies listed on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong. Winners of the Awards who are not already a member of CHKLC should become a member to give further support to the promotion of corporate governance and ESG in Hong Kong.
Companies winning the Awards in the same Award Category (i.e. Excellence in Corporate Governance or Excellence in ESG) consecutively for two times are not eligible to re-enter for the same Award Category for the next two contests.
Winning companies will have the opportunity to participate in media activities arranged by CHKLC to raise company visibility and create goodwill.
