Hong Kong Smoke-free Leading Company Awards 2016

Hong Kong Council on Smoking and Health (COSH) organized the Hong Kong Smoke-free Leading Company Awards together with Occupational Safety and Health Council in 2016 with the aims to encourage businesses to promote smoke-free messages to their stakeholders including employees, customers and the general public on a continuous basis. The Awards received over 480 applications, a significant increase of 40% as compared with 2013, benefiting more than 65,000 employees from a wide variety of industries, including construction, retail, logistics, property management and government departments. Nearly 50 major commerce chambers and associations also fully supported the Awards by motivating members to join. Besides, in collaboration with smoking cessation service providers, businesses successfully urged their stakeholders to join the “Smoke-free Family”.

This year, three companies received the Triple Gold Awards for their continuous commitment; ten companies received the Gold Awards, and one of them also received the Most Creative Smoke-free Policy Award for recognition of its innovative smoke-free initiatives; nine received the Silver Awards and over 450 companies were awarded the Certificates of Merit.

A wide variety of smoke-free measures have been adopted which effectively united the employees, industry and the general public to create a supportive atmosphere for smoking cessation, e.g. World No Tobacco Day promotion activity, smoking cessation reward scheme, smoking cessation support group and smoke-free corner to gather co-workers’ support for quitters.

COSH also launched a tailored programme, Smoke-free Construction Force, in 2016 to disseminate smoke-free messages among construction workers whose smoking prevalence is high.


Some 400 companies joined the awards this year and are committed to promoting smoke-free culture.
