Nexia TS to organise its 2nd Annual Coporate Social Responsility Day with more than 150 staff participating in Coastal Cleanup activities

July 2014

 

Nexia TS’ 2nd Annual Corporate Social Responsibility Day (CSR Day) will witness more than 150 Nexia TS staff participating in National Environment Agency’s (NEA) Seashore Life Programme to clean up the Changi Beach on 11 July 2014. NEA’s Seashore Life Programme aims to raise awareness about seashore life and also engage volunteers to clean up beaches as their contribution to protect the natural ecosystem. This will be a full- day event from 8.30am to 5.00pm, with coastal cleanup activities in the morning and Nexia TS wellness mass games in the afternoon.

 

In conjunction with the coastal cleanup, we will also be recording data findings on the trash collected to contribute to the Ocean Trash Index Report, in collaboration with the International Coastal Cleanup Singapore, the volunteer arm of the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research at the National University of Singapore. The data collected will be used to raise awareness, identify hotspots for debris or unusual trash events, and inform policy solutions. This CSR event serves to educate staff on conservation of the environment and protection of marine life, and also to foster greater bonding amongst staff.

 

“As a professional services firm, Nexia TS assumes the responsibility of not only providing training to our staff in technical and professional skills, but also instilling a culture of being socially responsible. Our CSR Day initiative is a testament to our commitment and passion in serving the community through two key aspects, Education and Community Welfare. We look forwrad to all making a difference to those around us.” said Henry Tan, Managing Director Nexia TS.

 

Our CSR Day was launched last year, when we celebrated Nexia TS’ 20th anniversary by making a difference. On 15 May 2013, our staff contributed grocery products out of their own pockets and distributed them to more than 150 beneficiaries from Yishun Ring RC at Food from the Heart distribution centres. Following the overwhelming success of this event, Nexia TS decided to designate a CSR Day for each year, when the entire Nexia TS family sets aside all work and contributes money, time and effort to give back to the community. We hope this initiative will encourage our staff to be involved in community service and positively influence those around them, such as their family and friends, to contribute as well.
