The COOL Corporate is a scheme organized by Friends of the Earth (HK) (‘FoE(HK)’) for organisations who aim to raise environmental awareness and improve their corporate social responsibility (CSR) & environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance. The scheme was revamped and rebranded from the Earth Partner since April 2016.

With over 10 years’ efforts, from Earth Partner to COOL Corporate, many of our members have achieved and demonstrated a high standard of environmental performance and behavioural change in terms of Bring Your Own Bottle/Box/Bag (BYOB3), electricity usage and recycling of material, etc.

Coming to the 2nd year of the COOL Corporate Membership Scheme (2017/18), new features and criteria are introduced. Green assignment is no longer prescriptive; members are free to contribute and submit result/performance of their green initiatives. Please don’t hesitate to join us!

Effective Period: 20 July 2017 to 19 July 2018


Objectives :


  • To increase awareness of climate change, enhancing knowledge of environmental problems and solutions;
  • To assist organisations in achieving sustainability through internal and external environmental initiatives;
  • To recognise organisations’ efforts towards enhancing CSR & ESG performance


New Features:


  • A simplified approach;
  • Green assignment is non prescriptive: members are free to submit result/performance of their green initiatives;
  • Two kinds of recognition will be given to CC members. One kind of certificate is dedicated to recognise their participation, the other recognition is dedicated to companies which demonstrate outstanding environmental performance;
  • Organisations could submit one-off data and evidence to show their environmental performance to FoE(HK) along with their CSR or CSG reporting cycle without making extra reporting effort
