We aim to empower our officers and employees to play greater roles in sustainability promotion and help raise their sustainability awareness, to this end providing them with special training. At least once a year, these individuals attend training sessions designed to call their attention to the importance of sustainability, address the latest trends in sustainability initiatives and brief them on the status of NMF’s sustainability measures and targets and the progress it has made. These training sessions thus help attendees stay acutely aware of and properly updated about various sustainability issues.
