The AmCham Shanghai CSR Awards is one of the longest running and most respected awards programs in China’s CSR community. The award recognized corporate and individual contributions to improving social, environmental, health and economic conditions in China. The selection criteria placed a premium on innovative approaches to solving social challenges, as well as emphasizing effective business and social collaboration.

On behalf of the company, Eric Langmans, the General Manager of Atlas Copco (Wuxi) Compressor Co.,Ltd received the Practitioner Award as Honorable Mention at the ceremony for outstanding efforts and commitment in supporting CSR projects as well as humanitarian. 

With Eric Langmans’ strong effort in cultivating social responsibility and sustainable development in the organization of Atlas Copco Wuxi Compressor, a dedicated volunteer team has been set up since 2011 to enhance the awareness of our employees and promote “Water for All” projects internally and externally. With the team effort and by walking the talk, Atlas Copco Wuxi Compressor’s “Water for All” participation rate of employees donating to the project increased from 15% to over 76% within 2 years and the total company contribution has more than doubled.

“Corporate social responsibility is not finished with one time contributions, one-time events or one-time projects. Corporate social responsibility is the joined effort of continuous engagement of people, society or companies to improve the life quality of those that are less fortunate. It is a unique chance to say united ‘we care – we can – we commit’ continuously, wherever, whenever”, said Eric Langmans at the ceremony.

This is the second time Atlas Copco received the CSR award from AmCham. In 2012 Atlas Copco (China) Investment Co., Ltd received the Partnership Award at the 7th Annual AmCham Shanghai Award Ceremony together with Plan China for outstanding contributions to Chinese society for its innovative CSR programs and initiatives.

Founded in 1984 by Atlas Copco employee in Sweden, the “Water for All” organization is devoted to the motto “People, especially children, have the right to access clean drinking-water and grow up in safe and clean environment”. Employees donate money to support the projects and the company doubles the amount donated.
