CHG-MERIDIAN uses energy for a good cause

Corporate social responsibility is firmly enshrined in CHG-MERIDIAN’s corporate philosophy. When it comes to supporting community-based projects, we want to encourage our employees to get involved with their own ideas and personal commitment.

CHG-MERIDIAN's employees apply themselves with as much vigor to good causes as they do to their work. The company's internal CARE initiative brings together ideas for community-based projects and involves the workforce in the decisions on which ones to support. This year the Belgian CHG-MERIDIAN office commits to a sporty challenge to support an environmental good cause.

WARMATHON - running for a good cause

The event will take place on the 20th of December in the heart of Brussels, near the Atomium. The organisation "Music for Life" organizes a run, Warmathon, where people can join in a safe environment and find sponsorships to support a good cause of their choice. Partners, The Red Cross and Studio Brussel, a local radio station, have created awareness for good causes for the past 12 years. Throughout Belgium, different 'runs' are organised for people to challenge themselves and ask friends and family to sponsor them. All the good causes have to be approved by a board and can then apply to raise money and awareness for the project.

 

WASTE FREE OCEANS

Each member of the Belgian office made a personal commitment to run or walk a certain amount of rounds on the predefined track for which they will try to find sponsoring. This year the colleagues decided that all of the money raised will go to a social cause that focusses on cleanig up oceans, Waste Free Oceans. Waste Free Oceans’ mission is to collect and transform plastics in our waters. WFO focusses on connecting the right partners to create value. They work together with local fishermen to collect ocean plastic, find recycling partners to seperate and clean the trash after which they cooporate with partners to create new products with the plastic. This recycle and reuse proces is familiar to CHG-MERIDIAN as it is what our company does with the returning assets in our technology and service center as well. This is why we found it a great cause to support. 

 

The next steps for the Belgian team is to gather as much money as possible and help Waste Free Oceans make an impact.
