Macao Water has been named the Most Socially Responsible Company for the 10th consecutive year in the 19th water company appraisal, which was co-organised by think-tanks E20 Environment Platform and H2O-China.

Macao Water Executive Director Nacky Kuan Sio Peng commented that water supply utilities have a variety of corporate social responsibilities such as providing safe and high-quality potable water and offering internship and exchange opportunities to young people. She added that the award was “a recognition of, and encouragement for, the efforts of all members of staff”.

Macao Water set up its Corporate Responsibility Committee a decade ago and has since integrated social responsibility concepts into its operational strategy and management measures.

Examples include the Seac Pai Van Water Treatment Plant, which was inaugurated last year, which supports the principles of “circular economy, energy efficiency and emission reduction” principles, and was awarded the One-star Certificate of Green Building Design Label. Macao Water has also partnered with tertiary institutions to conduct research on improving “energy efficiency of water supply systems”, The Macau Post Daily reported.
