2021 is a turning point in the cause of sustainable development. More and more companies are realizing the importance of CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) and building a sustainable business model for the future development of enterprises. The European Union Chamber of Commerce in China has always emphasized fulfilling corporate social responsibility in a strategic and innovative way to achieve sustainable corporate development.

The application for the sustainable development award includes five categories: Advanced Performer in Decarbonisation; Navigating Diversity and Inclusion; Outstanding Environmental Performance; Pioneer in Advancing Rural Revitalisation; and Resilient Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure Leader.

Since its establishment, Inclusion Factory has always taken promoting the integration and employment of people with intellectual disabilities as its corporate mission. So far, we have created 70 decent jobs for people with disabilities. Among them, 37 people with intellectual disabilities are directly employed by Inclusion Factory, and the remaining 33 are hired by other companies with the support and help of Inclusion Advisory.

Inclusion Factory has been actively promoting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We believe that more companies will integrate the concept of sustainable development and innovative spirit into their strategy in the future. We also hope that more companies and social organizations will promote the integration of people with intellectual disabilities into employment so that people with intellectual disabilities can realize their own social values.
