Our Core Values

We incorporate sustainability into planning, implementation of housing development and maintenance programmes to provide quality, safe, affordable, people-oriented and eco-friendly public housing. Our sustainability strategies, priorities and programmes are clearly defined in terms of environmental, social and economic sustainability. We strive to balance the needs from these three aspects to attain the goals of healthy living, sustainable construction and urban environment enhancement.
