Author: Century 3 Update: 2017-05-31
“Three things will last forever--faith, hope, and love--and the greatest of these is love.”
Century 3, a leading engineering and project management company in China, attended More than a Market Award Ceremony for the second year as an award participant at Kerry Hotel Pudong on 15 June. More Than a Market, initiated by German Chamber of Commerce Shanghai, is an event aiming at promoting and motivating entrepreneurial spirit and corporate social responsibility.
Started in 2015 by the German Chamber of Commerce and the Bertelsmann Stiftung, with support from the German Consulate General, the More than a Market Award was set up to award some of the most outstanding and inspiring charity projects of German companies in China. This year, about 60 companies, including Century 3, have participated in the award and 18 companies are short listed for the awards.
Century 3, who has established a close partnership with many German companies, was awarded for its continuous effort in sponsoring children from Guangxi Province for their yearly education and living expenses and donation of gift bags to impoverished children in Gansu Province. In addition to providing material goods, Century 3 also endeavors to promote safety culture by organizing annual EHS forum, which brings together business leaders and industrial experts to find ways to minimize the negative consequences of work on people and the environment.
