|Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)|
As an operating division of HKT Group Holdings Limited (HKT) – a wholly-owned subsidiary of PCCW Limited – PCCW Global is keen to use in-house skills and technology know-how coupled with our international reach and cultural diversity to make a tangible contribution to society.
At times of humanitarian need, we provide crucial emergency telecommunications to assist aid organizations and the victims they serve. We also help reunite displaced families and facilitate post-disaster rehabilitation by supporting fundraising activities.
Télécoms Sans Frontières (TSF)
PCCW Global helps to provide emergency telecoms as a Télécoms Sans Frontières (TSF) corporate partner. For more than 10 years, TSF has played a crucial role in supporting rescue efforts by deploying telecoms centers to relieve war or other disaster-hit locations.
By establishing emergency communications swiftly, TSF makes the difference between life and death in often dangerous conditions. The organization also helps unite displaced families by sponsoring free calls to anywhere in the world, so that civilians in desperate need are able to reach loved ones.

Sichuan Earthquake Relief
An earthquake measuring 8.0 on the Richter Scale struck Sichuan, China in May 2008, killing more than 68,000 people. The disaster disrupted power, causing severe telecoms congestion – an outage that seriously hampered relief efforts. PCCW Global contributed satellite phones to the China Red Cross to help facilitate communications for rescue teams.
Stand TALL helps children of Sichuan earthquake victims to stand tall
PCCW Global also co-operated with Stand TALL, an organization that helps rehabilitate victims physically disabled by the earthquake. We provided an MPLS connection between Sichuan State Hospital and the Prince of Wales Hospital in Hong Kong. This enabled medical personnel in Sichuan to receive real-time training or advice from Hong Kong-based physiotherapists and other specialists via high definition video-conferencing links.

Caring For and Nurturing Our Employees
PCCW Global believes in empowering its people to fulfill their potential by providing personal-development opportunities that involve travel, job rotation and exposure to international business activities.
As an equal opportunities employer, we respect and celebrate a diversity of cultures in the international workplace, as well as among our geographically-dispersed office locations and customer base.
We have earned a reputation for developing a global team spirit by engaging our colleagues physically or via the latest technologies and sharing information in a way that highlights our approach to cross-cultural awareness, communications and teamwork.
From a business perspective, PCCW Global insists on ethical conduct and observes strict corporate governance to ensure all operations are performed with integrity and transparency.
In addition, PCCW Global is committed to best environmental practice and adopts sustainable policies and processes designed to reduce harmful impact. A prime example of the company’s contribution to preserving the planet is a high-definition video-conferencing service that provides a “like being in the same room” experience, thereby negating the need to travel by road, rail, sea or air for business meetings.
