Hong Kong retailer removes ivory from shelves

The ban by the store in North Point followed similar measures implemented by the stores Wing On, Yue Hwa and Chinese Arts & Crafts last year.

The 52-year-old department store said it had told its tenant supplier in late November to stop selling products made of ivory items listed under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora.

"We are aware that a business … should not only be about profit, it should also take on its social and environmental and conservation responsibility," CGCL director Wong Chow Kuen-kuen wrote in a letter to pro-Beijing lawmaker Elizabeth Quat.
