The European Union Chamber of Commerce in China has been a strong advocate of CSR over the past years. This year`s CSR Awards Ceremony brought International and Chinese Business and Organization Leaders, CSR experts, as well as representatives of Government from all over China to Nanjing.
The CSR Awards aim to acknowledge successful projects with CSR value, raise sustainability awareness, and share experience with promoting social corporate responsibility in China.
We are very honored to win the SMEs Award: Excellence in Responsible Innovation, we would also like to express our gratitude to the European Chamber of Commerce for their support and trust.
Our project Mechanical Inclusive Factory was done in cooperation with Flex, where we established a special production line fully operated by people with intellectual disabilities.
Looking back at this project, we have come across many difficulties, but we have always had the same goal: inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities into the mainstream working environment. Slowly, together with Flex we overcame all the difficulties and brought this project to the world.
We believe that having a job is not only offering a salary but also providing hope for people with intellectual disabilities and their families. Thanks to this project, their role from consumers was transferred to contributors to our society.
Now Mechanical Inclusive Factory has been running almost for one year and has already employed 12 people with intellectual disabilities.
By giving us this award today, European Chamber proved that this model has been successful and innovative. Also, we want to say thank you to the Flex team, who decided to do another big step towards inclusion!
We hope that more and more responsible companies will join us on the road to inclusion. We promise you that this inclusion trip will exceed all your expectations.
