Caring for the planet is a journey that requires commitment. That’s why we aim to recycle every available material and resource, using cutting edge equipment such as our caustic recovery plant. This cuts our use of caustic chemicals by half, recycling up to 16 tons of caustics every day, while also cutting runoff generation by 50%, making it easier for us to treat and reuse water resources.
Just because our Day Care is closed due to COVID-19 doesn’t mean learning should stop.
Our day care team is working with the factory workers who are parents to ensure continued learning of their children.
With an exchange of ideas through International Finance Corporation (IFC) PLC series, we have been providing home work sheets and Digital content to the factory workers. These children don’t get a chance to go to school. Day Care facility is their happy place to learn and grow. We have also provided COVID-19 safety kits and stationary packs to the parents.
Following IFC guideline on Tackling Child Care, we are providing distant learning opportunities to our factory workers’ children.
Every child deserves a better future regardless of their socio-economic background.
