CEO's Speech on World Environment Day
Welcome to the first Luen Thai celebration of the United Nation's "World Environment Day." I am very happy that you can join us this afternoon in this short but very important program.
Through this event, we at Luen Thai, are reaffirming our commitment to responsible environmental practices. As a recognized leader in the apparel industry, we also want to set the pace in promoting environmental awareness and protection.
Over the years, we have demonstrated this commitment through our corporate social responsibility practices and day-to-day business operations. Today, we call on our stakeholders like our customers, government officials, and employees to make environment initiatives and awareness work.
Environmental protection is an initiative that will benefit us all. And it will continue to benefit the future generation.
As a company with more than 12,000 employees in the Dongguan facility alone, we can do a lot. The individual plays an important role in the success of energy saving and environmental protection measures. This is why we marked this special day with activities for employees to create awareness on the subject of environmental protection.
Externally, even our customers are making requests for us to support green initiatives and even coming up with more environmental-friendly products. In response to all these, we will soon launch our own Green Campaign, which we hope will make a big difference to the environment and look forward to significant cost savings.
We believe we must set long-term objectives in terms of caring and protecting the environment. This is part of our commitment to be a good corporate citizen. I count on everyone's support for our green initiative to suceed.
