Social Enterprise

I am one of the founding members of the Hong Kong General Chamber of Social Enterprise (GCSE). Since 2014, I become the chairperson of GCSE’s Committee on SE Endorsement Mark ( SEE Mark ), which is the only assessment scheme to certify SEs in Hong Kong. GCSE is one of the key SE platforms in Hong Kong established in 2009 to promote the development and sustainability of SE to resolve social problems and deliver social good through business operation. Apart from SEE Mark, GCSE partners with academic institutions to conduct researches on SEs, meets government officials and advocates for policy changes of to provide a nurturing environment for the development of SE. GCSE host conferences, conduct capacity building activities, pays visits to local and overseas SEs, as well as organize yearly outstanding award ceremony to boost morale of SE staffs.

“Cross sectoral collaboration would provide better solutions for addressing different social problems. I hope GCSE could leverage the support from BLW to strengthen the SEs to do more social good for the community, and BLW could use GCSE as a platform for CSR initiatives of its members.”
