Sustainability Report 2013 - page 3

About this report
New World Development Company Limited (“New World Group” or the
“Group”; Stock Code: 17.HK) recognises the importance of transparency as a
key factor of corporate sustainability and proudly presents our first standalone
sustainability report. Sustainability information has always formed an integral
part of the Company’s annual report. However, with the development of
international and local reporting frameworks, it is timely to take this important
step to produce this standalone sustainability report to address the increasing
desire for sustainability information of our stakeholders.
Due to our diverse business nature, the scope of our first report is mainly
focused on wholly owned subsidiaries of the four listed companies (“Group
Companies”) under New World Group. The report highlights our sustainability
performances between 1 July 2012 and 30 June 2013 (the “reporting period”).
Appendix 1 presents the reporting entities of this report.
The preparation of this report made reference to the Global Reporting Initiative
Reporting Guidelines (GRI 4 and GRI 3.1) and the Environmental, Social
and Governance Reporting Guide (the ESG Guide) issued by Hong Kong
Exchanges and Clearing Limited. An independent verification of the content of
this report was conducted by the Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC) and
confirmed that the report has achieved a B+ Application Level in accordance
with the GRI 3.1 Guidelines.
