Earth Day celebrations and awareness is becoming more and more important in our lives. We need to protect our environment, preserve natural resources, reduce our carbon footprint and fight climate change, so we and our future generations can continue to survive and flourish on our mother planet. The construction industry is a big sector in carbon emission, our day-to-day work continues the mission of improving living environments and reducing carbon emissions.
Urgency. 2025 will come before we realize it, the clock is ticking, we need to keep on monitoring its process and raise more awareness of its process so we can truly achieve our goal.
When we actually make a difference, and the client’s “business-as-usual” practice is changed via our engagement and coordination.
Change doesn’t happen in one day, continue your mission persistently, it may take longer than you think but time will tell.
