On June 28, POSCO-China received a commemorative plaque at the Humanitarian Resource Development Research Forum 2016, organized by the Red Cross Society of China.
The forum, which was held for the first time this year, was designed for companies involved in social welfare activities to share information and to spread the culture of sharing. At the forum, POSCO-China received the plaque in appreciation of its activities giving back to local communities.
Out of the 10 companies that received the plaques, only two were non-Chinese companies. POSCO-China and Samsung China were selected, beating out leading international firms from the United States, Europe and Japan.
POSCO-China, as a regional affiliate of POSCO, has been active in helping the victims of earthquakes, floods and other natural disasters in China through the Red Cross Society, beginning with fundraising activities for victims of the Sichuan earthquake in 2008.
In addition, the company has been a regular contributor to a range of other social contribution activities in China, including fundraising for the preservation of local culture in Longjing, Jilin Province, a scholarship program and creating green space in Dawangjing Park in Beijing.
POSCO-China will continue to build its brand image as one that people can trust and proactively spread a culture of sharing through its various social contribution activities.
