Modern Terminals is a responsible corporate citizen. The core principles of our Sustainability Policy align with our company mission, vision, strategies, brand promises and culture values. This policy is a compass that drives both the sustainable development of our operations and our contributions to the well-being of the communities in which we live and work.



Modern Terminals believes our people are central to the success of our business. For that reason, and to fulfill our mission of being an employer of choice, we believe in caring for and investing in every member of our staff.

We are committed to recruiting, cultivating and retaining a talented, competent and professional workforce whose members enjoy a strong sense of belonging as they live our corporate culture and enable one another to achieve their common goals and grow together with the company.

Occupational health and safety is the top priority at Modern Terminals. All of us at Modern Terminals assume responsibility for safety and health at work.

We engage with employees, contractors and customers to increase awareness and make continuous enhancements to our health and safety approach.

We have a well-developed occupational health and safety management system in place and we periodically benchmark it to global terminals to ensure that best practices are implemented in our terminals.


We take steps to understand the communities amongst which we work and actively support various initiatives and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to support youth development, and to promote environmental awareness as well as sports to lead a healthy life.

Modern Terminals Summer Fitness Programme, our annual community initiative, was launched in 2017 to encourage healthy lifestyles. The programme provides sports training and development activities to children aged 8-14 from low income families in Kwai Tsing and CSA, as well as the children of our employees.

In order to establish a long-term connection with all participants, Modern Terminals Summer Fitness Programme Alumni has been established in 2019 to continue to provide members with sports-related and youth development activities.

Modern Terminals actively participates in Project WeCan.

The programme is to encourage companies and individuals to partner with Hong Kong’s secondary schools in improving the overall performance of their students.

It covers a wide scope, ranging from enhancing teaching capability and learning motivation in schools through to help with life-goal planning, care and counselling and parent engagement on an individual basis. 

Since 2011, we have been supporting the improvement programmes of the Cotton Spinners Association Secondary School. Our funding has helped the school to obtain professional academic assistance from the Chinese University of Hong Kong as well as developed various plans to cater for the students’ needs. We also provide training and exposure opportunities to pupils through many activities, including talks, visits and summer job placements.

While our MVF voluntarily donate their time and energy to serve deserving causes, MTL also supports with donation matching schemes.
