Calderys APAC is very active in Sustainable Development initiatives, supporting the local community wherever possible. Four projects from China, Indonesia, Korea and Taiwan were selected by Imerys to enter the final stage of the 2016 Imerys SD Challenge:
Calderys China supports a school girl without parents in a poverty-stricken family in their surrounding neighbourhood.
Calderys Korea has organized a briquette-delivery activity in a remote village for the winter.
Calderys Indonesia has 3 nice local community projects: Enlarging a water canal in the neighbourhood to reduce and eliminate road flooding; updating the plan to minimize the impact of dust and sound for better living conditions around the neighbourhood; providing clean water to the local villagers.
Calderys Taiwan invited the local community to understand and prioritize the needs: The first one was to fill in the pot holes on the roads; and secondly, our managers volunteered as English teachers in a local school.
