On November 24, 2007, Capgemini won the “Best Corporate Citizenship” award at China’s Corporate Citizenship Forum. The event, which took place at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, was hosted by the China Corporate Citizenship Committee (CCCC), China Central Television and philanthropy foundation Tencent.
Vice Chairman of the China Association of Social Workers Liu Jing acknowledged the contribution of Capgemini’s Bo Chen to the CCCC’s strategic planning in his opening remarks. Jiang Zhenghua, Vice Chairman of the Standing Committee of The National People’s Congress and Honorary Chairman of the China Committee of Corporate Citizenship, was the distinguished presenter.
Accepting the award, Bo Chen explained that Capgemini takes its role as a global consulting leader and corporate citizen very seriously. “Corporate responsibility is more than public relations and marketing. It is deeply rooted in the company’s core values and fully integrated into our regulations, our brand and our culture. We lead by example and encourage our partners to make corporate responsibility an integral part of their strategy and culture too.”
Theo de Hair of Capgemini France echoed the sentiments of his colleague: “A good enterprise provides customers with excellent products and services, but a great one strives to make the world a better and more harmonious place.”
Capgemini is actively involved in charitable and community activities around the world. Recent initiatives in Asia include activities to support the education of children in India and to assist orphans and protect traditional culture in Tibet.
