Since 2014, 7-Eleven Hong Kong has launched a food donation initiative partnering with Foodlink Foundation. The initiative enables 7-Eleven to donate thousands of surplus bakery products to different beneficiaries every month, which further helps distribute the bakery to the people in need. Through the food donation program, we hope to reduce food disposal, and to reach out as well as show our care for the community.

7-Eleven has deployed a series of in-store energy saving initiatives to reduce its carbon footprint. It has been adopting LED lighting and signs as well as an energy-efficient air-conditioning system to reduce carbon emission. It has also installed sliding doors for in-store refrigerators in order to reduce cold air loss. Ultimately, all of these initiatives play a role in protecting the environment.

7-Eleven Hong Kong has received the prestigious "CLP GreenPlus Recognition Award – Energy Saving Award" green awards, which recognize the essential role played by 7-Eleven in promoting environmental protection awareness and energy-saving initiatives.

As the world’s leading convenience store, 7-Eleven plays an active role in tackling climate change by implementing an in-store recycling initiative. Recycling boxes are placed in selected stores to encourage the recycling of waste materials. The collected waste will then be transferred to recycling centers for further processing, supporting the development of the local recycling industry.

7-Eleven aims to reduce carbon emissions through daily operations, to create a sustainable business practice and an environmentally friendly community for our customers.

With a commitment to working towards environmentally sustainable practices, 7-Eleven joined the World Wide Fund’s Corporate Membership Programme to create mass awareness of environmental protection through a series of meaningful and educational activities.

Bringing along family members and friends as well as the people in need, 7-Eleven colleagues engaged themselves in green weekends, indulging in environmental and cultural heritage education as well as voluntary work. These have included activities held at Mai Po, Hoi Ha Wan Marine Park, and Tai Po Island House. Through these series of activities, it is hoped that colleagues can fully experience human-nature interactions, and most importantly, engage in broader conservation efforts to promote environmental awareness.

7-Eleven partnered with local tertiary institution to launch the “Art Convenience Store” community art project. Making use of 7-Eleven stores located in city centers, the project invites young illustrators to fill the cityscape with creative art. With each artsy brushstroke detailing the unique features of different local communities, selected 7-Eleven stores located in different areas are transformed into vibrant Art Convenience Stores.

Through the unique platform of convenience stores, 7-Eleven hopes to sow and spread the seeds of community art, as well as grant an opportunity to young artists to let their artwork flourish in public spaces, engaging the local community through paintings as inspirational as they are aesthetically pleasing. Every artwork records the countless interactions between 7-Eleven and the community, showing the close bonds built with Hong Kong people over the decades.

7-Eleven has been building and maintaining franchisee relationship with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) such as Rehabilitation Alliance Hong Kong, Youth Outreach and Yuen Long Town Hall Jockey Club, coupled with job training opportunities for the NGO members to provide a quick way of running a business as a social enterprise for the underprivileged.

Meanwhile, 7-Eleven has been collaborating with Caritas Lok Mo Integrated Vocational Training Centre to provide employment opportunities to job seekers with disabilities since 2013. This initiative not only provides a platform to the disabled to perform and contribute to the community but also integrates them into the community and enables them to live with dignity and equality.
