Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) is fast becoming a keyword for listed companies and multi-national organizations. In the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and Japan have made consistent and reasonable ESG reporting mandatory for some industry segments or listed companies. In Hong Kong, Malaysia and Korea, annual reporting on ESG status has become an important part of prudent management and a common practice for businesses every year. ESG Report is also named as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report and Sustainability Report.

   
 

In Hong Kong, most of Hang Seng Index companies are reporting ESG issues in some form while half of them have a stand-alone report. Internationally, over 90% of Global companies are reporting their ESG performances.

ACI is the first Certification Body to provide ‘indirect nutrient analysis’

Under the “Food and Drugs (Composition and Labelling) (Amendment: Requirements for Nutrition Labelling and Nutrition Claim) Regulation 2008 (Amendment Regulation)”, from July 1, 2010 onwards all pre-packaged food should be coupled with nutrition labeling. The new regulation requires the "one plus seven" nutrition information to be labelled, including energy and seven core nutrients: protein, carbohydrate, total fat, saturated fatty acids, trans fatty acids, sodium and sugar. It costs a lot for small and medium size firms to use direct nutrient analysis (i.e. testing nutrients laboratory) to do a comprehensive and detailed report of food nutrition. In addition to direct nutrient analysis, however, the Government has clearly pointed out another less costly way to get food nutrition information ‘indirect nutrient analysis’ This analysis method calculates the nutritional information of food based on raw materials nutritional information and cooking methods, which not only in line with the Government's statutory requirements, but also effectively control production costs.

ACI is the first Certification Body to use ‘indirect nutrient analysis’ to provide related data and materials’ nutrition information for food manufacturers, and calculate the corresponding data to create nutrition labels, which can save considerable production cost and time. To provide high-value services is always our goal, interesting party please feel free to contact us

Interview with ACI by South China Morning Post

ACI was honored to be interviewed by South China Morning Post on the issue of quality assurance as one of the economic pillars of Hong Kong. Our Managing Director had expressed his professional perspective on the above issue, being reported on May 11, 2009 South China Morning Post.

The Chief Executive of HKSAR Donald Tsang proposed six economic pillars in response to the declining economy in the Policy Address last year. Quality assurance of food and pharmaceutical products is one of the six pillars. It is believed that the scope of the quality testing will be extended to other aspects in the long run. In other words, product testing and certification industry will become a hot industry in the near future.

Despite this great opportunity, Our Managing Director expressed his concern over the quality of certification bodies. He was concerned about the competition between certification bodies in Hong Kong and those in Mainland China. Hong Kong’s Manufacturers might choose services from Mainland’s certification bodies because of a cheaper price, sacrificing the quality of service the certification bodies provided.

Since the quality assurance products being highlighted by the government is going to be more and more important, we recommend you choosing certification bodies which comply with international standards in order to respond to the rigorous demand of the market.
