INVISTA Rolls out “Good Neighbor” Community Program in Qingpu, Shanghai
As part of INVISTA’s commitment to pursuing its sustainability vision through responsible stewardship of the environment and care for its employees, customers and communities—INVISTA recently launched the “INVISTA Qingpu Good Neighbor” community program in the Xianghuaqiao community of the Qingpu District. As a manufacturer and employer in this district for nearly 20 years, INVISTA is the first corporation to initiate and organize this kind of community service program in Qingpu.
By focusing on environmental, health and safety related aspects, the program was established with an aim to enhance neighborhood relations and the quality of life for the local community—offering employees a platform to contribute to and give back to the community. The INVISTA Qingpu Good Neighbor program is supported by the Qingpu Volunteer Association and the Xianghuaqiao Community Office and co-organized by Horizon Corporate Volunteer, a local non-government organization.
This year-long program will include a variety of volunteer services, targeting local community residents including students, children of migrant workers, and the elderly—providing them with opportunities to develop sound awareness and practices regarding safety and environmental protection. Opportunities are open to all employees from INVISTA’s and INVISTA venture’s Qingpu sites wishing to volunteer for the Good Neighbor Program.On June 26, representatives from INVISTA's Qingpu sites, participating government and non-government organizations and local media gathered at the Xianghua Primary school for the official launch of the program and kickoff of “Safe Summer Vacation,” the first volunteer activity for primary school students.
As part of Safe Summer Vacation, 16 volunteers from INVISTA’s Qingpu sites conducted a safety education workshop for more than 40 students. During the workshop, the students participated in knowledge sharing, interactive exercises and discussions on safety scenarios that helped them form good safety and self-protection practices for their upcoming summer vacation.
