Executive Chairman’s Message

5

We are pleased to demonstrate that ZLF continues to make a difference in the lives of individuals, organisations and communities. The works of the Foundation would further sharpen the focus of our corporate social responsibility activities which are embedded in our core values of environmental integrity, people centeredness, collaborations, partnerships, innovation, gender responsive and social inclusive and intergenerational equity.

Our believe in education, training and capacity building is the reason behind the continuous investment in environmental, health and sanitation clubs in schools (dubbed Zoomkids Clubs) across the country which is aimed at instilling environmental, social ethics and consciousness in young children.

In as much as Zoomlion is known for its waste collection and environmental cleanliness services, it is also known for its leadership role as a social impact investor. In the first quarter of 2016 alone, ZLF gave sponsorship to the tune of GHC¢83,200 to support individuals with serious ailments and also provided educational assistance for brilliant but needy students. Since the inception of Jospong and Zoomlion Groups of Companies in 1993/2006 we have given sponsorship amounting to Ten million Ghana cedis (GHC¢10,000,000.00).

There is nothing heartwarming for us than to see smiles on the faces of beneficiaries whenever we support them. For us, smiles symbolise- hope, satisfaction and joy and urge us to keep doing what we are well known for. Further it tells us that our assistance would go a long way to contribute to sustainable development. We of course would not be able to reach out to everyone but the few we do reach can face life with confidence knowing well that a company cares for them. Enjoy this maiden edition and I wish you all a happy reading.
