SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT – THE KEY FOR LONG-TERM DEVELOPMENT OF COMPANIES
On the 8th January 2021, CHANGE visited Shire Oak International (SOI) office to organise “Together with the Enterprise Protect Wildlife” workshop, to raise SOI’s employee awareness of environmental issues and the current global wildlife crisis.
COVID-19 has caused much damage not only to the global economy but also to people’s lives. Hence the worldwide movement calling to eliminate wildlife consumption, and lessen the spread of viruses initiated from wild animals, is more vital than ever. CHANGE, WildAid and GIZ have hosted a chain of seminars and training for enterprises with diverse types of business models.
In the workshop, SOI’s employees had a chance of listening to CHANGE’s speaker about environmental issues and the endangered species. Through heartbreaking stories, they became aware of the urgent emergency of the Vietnam wildlife crisis. They were excited and enthusiastic when discussing tips on how to decrease each individual’s negative effect on the environment, plenty of creative ideas came up which made the workshop more energetic.
“As a business that closely aligns with sustainable development, Shire Oak International will also do our best to help spread the word not just to the general audience but also our business partners. Other than that, as we build rooftop solar projects in Vietnam, SOI is giving away $1000 to help local communities take care of their natural surrounding for every 1MW installed.”, Mr Borries Plass, SOI’s Chief Operating Officer, shared.
Besides the economic benefit, enterprises also consider Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). CSR is a certainty in globalisation. SOI is one of many enterprises go with this flow, therefore signing in the Pledge for Wildlife is creditable.
Now, let’s look back at the Workshop’s memorable memories!
