Nippon Paint China recently boosted its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, with the launch of its “Society Care” programs in nine big cities around China. These charitable programs drew the participation of more than 1,000 voluntary staff members from seven different business sectors of Nippon Paint China, who embodied the company’s spirit.
As one of Asia’s leading paint manufacturers, Nippon Paint China began their steps towards developing a social public welfare program back in 2009, when they initiated the “Color, Way of Love” program, which renovates and improves the learning environment of schools in rural areas in China. They have also developed several social interest activities, which included establishing a special fund together with China Youth Development Foundation and Shanghai United Foundation, for “Color, Way of Love;” donating the establishment of Nippon Paint China Happy Art Class; launching training programs for school teachers and providing teaching opportunities for college students.
