120 Years of Shared Vision

In 1901, CLP was first incorporated in Hong Kong as China Light & Power Syndicate.  Starting at a time when electricity was still a novelty worldwide, CLP supplied electricity to the Kowloon peninsula and subsequently began electrifying the rural areas in 1960s. Today, CLP Group powers millions of homes and businesses across the Asia Pacific regions. 

The way to the future is paved by the past. For 120 years, the shared vision of a better tomorrow has held CLP and the communities together through many ups and downs. This colourful history is a testimony to the resilience, passion and creativity of not just CLP but also Hong Kong. 

I believe the values that we all share are the values that we see in CLP. Those values of people trust. Their values of honesty. Their values of being able to give people what they need, to be able to provide them with confidence, and a long-term view.

The Honourable Sir Michael Kadoorie, Chairman of CLP Group
