We will continue to make investments towards improving our environmental performance, and creating a positive impact on our stakeholders.”
In addition to these direct initiatives, the company has also conducted environmental awareness training not only for its own employees, but also for employees of other SME organisations in the vicinity. As part of its CSR initiatives, Pure Research’s employees ran an awareness campaign by engaging with employees of other organisations and sharing some best practices that can help them reduce the environmental impact at workplaces as well as in homes.
