SCMP and the Trust Project
In 2020, the South China Morning Post became the first news organisation in Asia to join the Trust Project, a consortium of the world’s top media companies committed to the highest standards of journalistic quality, transparency and credibility. The Trust Project is a worldwide initiative that provides standards of news production to help readers identify credible journalism. It is also supported by tech platforms such as Google, Facebook and Bing, who use the Trust Indicators to guide how they carry quality journalism.
Approved news sites with the Trust Project display “Trust Indicators” – a set of digital standards showing the organisations’ ethics and the measures they adopt for fairness and accuracy. The Trust Indicators help readers make informed decisions about what to read and share.
The Post believes a commitment to transparency is foundational to journalistic excellence. By implementing transparent newsroom policies on ethics, corrections, fact-checking and sourcing, its participation with the Trust Project underlines SCMP’s dedication to press freedom and quality journalism. This reinforces its continued mission to lead the global conversation on China with trustworthy, comprehensive reporting from its unique vantage point in Hong Kong.
