Solar Energy Generation System Extension - Encourage the Use of Renewable Energy

This extended benefit covers legal liability against accidental death or bodily injury to a third party, or accidental loss of or damage to third party's property (including house, semi-detached house or village house), arising out of the use of a solar energy generation system installed in the insured premises. The maximum benefit is HK$5,000,000 per accident or per period of insurance.

GoHealthy Platform - Live a Healthy Lifestyle

In order to help customers establish a healthy lifestyle, the new GoHealthy platform attached to Blue Cross HK App unveils an innovative function "Eat Healthy" in the first phase. With the use of artificial intelligence, it analyses the nutrient content of every meal, such as calories, fat, protein, sugar and intake, and provides personalised healthy eating tips. In the meantime, upon completion of health missions, customers can earn SmartPoints for gift redemption.

More content and functions will be made available on GoHealthy platform soon, including health information such as wellness and health care articles, and seasonal herbal soup, etc. In the next phase, "Ask Nutritionist" message box will be set up that a team of licensed nutritionists will answer customers' enquiries and give professional advice on healthy diet, helping them to build healthy eating habits.

Mr. Patrick Wan, Managing Director of Blue Cross, said, "Blue Cross is committed to the sustainable development of the company. We have taken steps to integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into our products and services, operations and the community. In the past few years, we have been actively optimising our business and promoting digitalisation in operations with the aim to reduce our impact on the environment on the one hand; improve operational efficiency and risk management capabilities on the other hand. Besides, we use digital tools to bring customers a digitalised experience which is truly paperless and cashless. Our one-stop digital medical insurance services that encompass online application, efficient and secure blockchain-enabled claims services, GPS location-based network doctor/clinic search, making doctor appointment online, or video consultation, optimise service experience and reinforce customer's trust in our products and services. The newly launched Solar Energy Generation System Extension and GoHealthy wellness platform can reflect how Blue Cross further instil environmental and wellness elements into our products and services, and build a healthy, sustainable and smart living with customers together."
