Responsibility to respect and protect the environment

Shenzhen Wenxin Electronics Co., Ltd.
Mr. Xiong Zhonghua

In 2016 and 2017, we conducted cleanup activities, in which we sorted out the litter gathered by each group and brought it to a garbage station. Our employees were greatly delighted with these two environmental activities and asked the company to hold such an activity more frequently. This type of meaningful environmental activity provides employees with an opportunity not only to engage in physical recreation but also to contribute to society. The cleanup activities also helped our employees raise their environmental awareness.
We all have the responsibility to respect and protect the environment because we live on one precious earth under the same sky.
We will not make our environmental activities mere formalities but develop them to give employees opportunities to truly enlighten themselves and to fulfill their responsibilities and roles as members of society.
