Swire in the CommunityThe communities in which we operate provide the resources, infrastructure and markets that support our business. Swire recognises that we can ultimately only operate sustainably if the communities in which we operate are, themselves, sustainable. Therefore, we must play our part and take responsibility as community members in ensuring a sustainable society. We endeavour to understand the needs of these communities through dialogue with stakeholders, and we contribute to them in the way we run our business.
