CLP always pays close attention to the development of education. It endeavors to provide assistance to education through charitable activities and promote the development of community education.
Since 2014, CLP has also launched the Support-a-School programme in Jiulong County, Ganzi Prefecture, Sichuan Province. The programme makes annual donations to three local primary schools of the Zang Clan every year, benefiting more than 900 students there. Donations are mainly used to improve school facilities and equipment so as to create a favorable learning environment for students.
In November 2009, CLP allocated HKD 6 million to establish the CLP-Tsinghua University Clean Energy Education Fund. The fund provides financial assistance to needy students in the Electrical Engineering Department of Tsinghua University in Beijing. Known for its outstanding academic achievements and rigorous research, the department has nurtured numerous top experts in the power industry.
Moreover, the CLP-Tsinghua University Clean Energy Education Fund aims to promote exchange activities and research on clean energy development. Through these efforts, we hope to makea contribution to the energy sector on the Mainland, while supporting China’s transition to a low-carbon economy.
