Sustainable Development Culture


At Shui On Land, we see culture as the culmination of the ideas, customs, values, social behaviour, and human achievement of a particular community. Culture strengthens our acceptance of others, improves the physical and mental health of a society, and brings about opportunities for people to come together.

Highlights of our own major development include finding win-win solutions for historic preservation and commercial development, small scale replicable urban regenerations and place creation, public, private partnerships linking culture and sustainability together, and other partnerships that promote cultural heritage and development. We also celebrate the shift in emphasis from “Made in China” to “Created in China” for products and services, and reflect this via our support for not only Chinese products and partnerships, but also support for local artists, entrepreneurs, and innovators.

By 2030, we want to have a stronger sense of SOL as a cultural leader and to achieve more ambitious and impressive targets as well as to reflect, review, and revise a new culture strategy beyond 2030.

Our priorities regarding Culture include:

  • Rejuvenate urban, cultural heritage sites
  • Engage, connect, and promote local creativity with future business opportunities
  • Facilitate international cultural exchange

2030 Targets

By 2030, we aim to:

  • - Embed cultural aspects into 100% of our projects/developments/ communities
  • - Publish culture impact report to set industry example and standard

Signature initiatives in 2021 will be:

  • - Created in China (featuring the ‘Creators 100’ programme which promotes and provides economic opportunities for local creators)
  • - Become a thought leader on Urban Regeneration and Cultural Heritage Rejuvenation for best practices by curating materials for college archives and courses for future research and learning
