Creating a standardized, transparent, open, dynamic and resilient capital market has become the consensus of the entire market participants. In this regard, Financial Street has a deep understanding in the process of studying and implementing the new securities law.

Since the company's asset replacement listing in 2000, it has implemented cash dividends for 20 consecutive years, and has accumulated cash dividends of nearly 10 billion yuan.

After the company "entered the motorcycle industry" and "entered the wealthy" successively in 2018, it was faced with the requirements of a more open international market. How to keep the investor relationship management work in step with the times and actively integrate with the international practice is what we have been working on in the past two years. actively exploring. With the gradual opening of China's capital market, more and more investment institutions are gradually increasing the weight of non-financial indicators while considering traditional financial indicators when measuring the quality of listed companies. Governance has been placed in a more important position, and listed companies that actively fulfill their social responsibilities have gained more support from investors.
"Everlasting business, eternal architecture" is the green product concept that Financial Street upholds. In accordance with the sustainable development management system, we comprehensively sort out the green energy-saving planning for the whole life cycle of the project, implement the sustainable development concept of comprehensively achieving green building standards, and implement the "four environmental protection" principles from project design, construction procurement, project delivery and property management. energy saving requirements.
In the practice of social responsibility, Financial Street interprets "responsibility" with practical actions. Since the beginning of 2020, the spread of the new crown pneumonia epidemic. In this urgent and no-fuss battle of epidemic prevention and control, the people of the financial street are facing difficulties, and their responsibilities are not absent. In terms of customer support, for small, medium and micro customers affected by the epidemic, we have taken measures such as postponing payment, reducing or exempting rent, etc., to help customers to overcome the difficulties together; in terms of community protection, financial street people are obliged to, nearly 400 volunteers and community members The workers have built a tight line of defense against the epidemic.
In terms of employee care, the company has always regarded human resources as the company's most important and valuable resource. Through strengthening echelon construction, deepening mechanism reform, caring for employees' interests, enriching employees' lives, and building a harmonious enterprise, the company's employee satisfaction reached 87% in 2019, higher than the average level of the real estate industry and the satisfaction level of the best employers for many consecutive years.

Financial Street focuses on information disclosure in accordance with laws and regulations, and adheres to the bottom line of compliance governance and honesty and trustworthiness. Protecting investors' right to know is not only the content emphasized again by the new securities law, but also the principle that our Financial Street has always adhered to. Because we know that only by always thinking about what investors think, we can lead the team to continuously improve the quality and effectiveness of information disclosure. What we ultimately protect is the investor's right to know and the investor's trust in the listed company.
