Link Concludes 2022 with 33 Accolades for Excellence in Sustainability and Stakeholder Engagement

Link Asset Management Limited (Link), the manager of Link Real Estate Investment Trust (Link REIT; Hong Kong stock code: 823), announced today (Wednesday) that Link won the Bronze Award in the category of Charity Events Communication at “The 18th China Golden Awards for Excellence in Public Relations” for its flagship community engagement event “Tour de LINK”. This honour marks the 33rd award in the calendar year of 2022 for Link’s accomplishments in sustainability, corporate governance and stakeholder engagement.

The award recognises the excellence of Link in communicating its charity and community engagement programme. Leveraging the property network across Hong Kong, Link launched “Tour de LINK”, the first-of-its-kind in-mall cycling relay event in the city, in 2021 to strengthen community bonding through sports. The annual event has been held twice since, with about 16,000 riders participating in the challenge. This flagship community event also resonated with Link’s promise to build a healthy community and link people to a brighter future.

Organised by the China International Public Relations Association, “China Golden Awards for Excellence in Public Relations” is the country’s most prestigious award in the communications sector. Each year, the awards attract a large number of entries from top-tier companies which have presence in China, including the country’s state-owned and the largest private enterprises, government agencies and Fortune Global 500 companies. Link is proud to stand out from the reputable crowd to receive this award.
