Lighting up lives for Muadzam Shah, Solar Lights for Jakun Tribes – Malaysia PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 10 June 2015 17:26

The 11th and 12th February 2015 was a memorable day for us, as it was the first ever batch of Nokero Solar Lights donated to the Jakun tribes in Muadzam Shah, Pahang here in Malaysia. We donated and distributed 192 solar lights to families living far inside the palm estates in Pahang. The lights were hand delivered to each family here, for a school and also for the common areas.

“We have a gathering of all the families here tomorrow, so we can use this lights when we gather here tonight.” – A Jakun tribe villager

It took us two days to locate and send all this lights from the first batch of sponsorship that I received from HelpAlliance, my German partners who are supporting the “Give Them Light- Asia” project this year.

This social awareness can only happen with ‘YOU’. When sufficient funds are collected for the total lights needed, we will purchase the Nokero solar lights and donate them to the families in need. The project will be photographed, documented and posted on the website.

“You buy a solar light, and I will send it for you to a family in need.”  – Kiran Kreer

CSR Asia : Business and Biodiversity PDF Print E-mail

Recent reports have highlighted the fact that researchers have identified 139 new species in Southeast Asia's Greater Mekong region, including 90 plants, 23 reptiles, 16 amphibians, 9 fish and one mammal. But many of the new species are already in danger because of habitat loss, poaching and other illegal activities. The relatively underdeveloped Greater Mekong region (covering Cambodia, Laos, Burma, Thailand and Vietnam) has unique ecosystems that have been home to a huge variety of undiscovered species. It is highly likely that many more species remain to be discovered. But those ecosystems also provide critical benefits for millions of people across the region. Thus conserving nature is a very important part of nature.

triplepundit : The Evolution Of Seafood Sustainability PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 20 May 2015 11:37

While walking down the many aisles of the Seafood Expo North America (SENA15), enjoying seafood samples, you cannot fail to notice all the attention given to sustainability. I’ve already mentioned the prevalence of seafood sustainability at the expo. While many of the exhibitors tout the sustainability of their products, in the darker corners of the hall, there are items which are more questionable, such as shark fin, though fortunately only a single exhibitor had that item. Each year, SENA seems to become more an more sustainable.

Besides the seafood purveyors, you’ll also find organizations devoted to sustainable issues, such as Aquaculture Stewardship Council, CleanFish, Fish Choice, Global G.A.P., Marine Stewardship Council, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Seaweb, Trace Register and others. These groups provide a wealth of information concerning seafood sustainability, and are more than willing to share all they know. Besides the exhibitors, there was also a Seafood Sustainability track in the conference sessions, presenting five different seminars (two fewer than last year) on sustainability-related issues.

thehindu : Use CSR budget to fund liver transplants in children: doctors PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 13 May 2015 18:41

Doctors and other stakeholders involved in liver transplantation in Karnataka are working towards getting industries utilise their corporate social responsibility (CSR) budget to fund liver transplants, especially among children.

With a similar initiative working well in Tamil Nadu and Assam, like-minded doctors from the State who have formed the Integrated Liver Care (ILC) Foundation are planning to discuss the plan with the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI).

Three paediatric transplants performed recently at BGS Global Hospitals have been funded by the ILC Foundation in corporate partnership from the IT sector.

Sonal Asthana, consultant, Multi Organ Transplant Surgeon at the hospital, who is also part of the ILC Foundation, told The Hindu on Tuesday that the idea was to get the industries pool in CSR funds into priority areas in healthcare, especially paediatric liver transplants.

Kaiser Raja, Consultant Hepatologist at BGS, said liver transplants are expensive and range between Rs. 20 lakh to Rs. 25 lakh depending on the condition of patients. Although paediatric transplants cost less, most patients cannot afford it even if they have living related donors.

ibnlive : Why investing on children is actually a good CSR PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 13 May 2015 18:35

Children in any country constitute a diverse population that reflects the actual potential of the economy. In business terms, they are a subject that is not considered to be a subject of business and yet they form a part of majority of the business/brand decisions that are taken to keep the businesses running. Companies interact with children regularly, although often directly or indirectly and in most parts of the country they are a market force to consider. We need to remind ourselves that we are talking about unleashing the potential of more than 30% of the population that in turn will affect/effect our economy, profits, dividends and most importantly our future.

Rs 20,000 crores by no means is a small number, a small portion of this gigantic sum can create a sustainable impact that can make or break our future and in order to do so, private sector has to play its role, we have to create partnerships. The same partnerships that are being created for disinvestment in PSU's, in creating infrastructure, in harnessing the potential of tourism, we need to have similar partnerships for children, their rights. It's not a charity, it's a sustainable investment and this investment will tomorrow yield manifold returns.
