Water shapes us, our thoughts and actions. It has the capability to even cut through stones and creates new paths when its flow is stopped. Water perseveres. Likewise, at HCLT, we draw inspiration for shaping our sustainability journey from this element.
Making way for tomorrow, today
‘All matter is comprised of four elements of earth, air, fire and water’
-Empedocles, Greek Philosopher, Scientist and Healer (5th century BC)
While fire and air are outwardly reaching elements, earth and water turn inward. The atmosphere encompasses all of these four elements. In our Sustainability Report 2012, we have drawn inspiration from the ‘atmosphere’ and its characteristics for our ‘Responsible Business’ section. ‘Fire’, the transformational element inspires us to continually ‘Rebalance our Workplace’. ‘Air’ inspires us to further enable our ‘Winds of Change’, our employee volunteers and Earth, constantly reminds us to ‘Renew the Ecosystem’ for our present and future.
What does water signify to us?
Water is our journey. Water shapes us, our thoughts and actions. It has the capability to even cut through stones, and creates new paths when its flow is stopped. Water perseveres. Likewise, at HCLT, we draw inspiriting for shaping our sustainability journey from this element.
We understand the challenges in the journey ahead but are confident that we can cut through barriers with the support of our employees and customers. When the entire industry was challenged by the global economic recession, our EFCS philosophy, much like the preserving water element, enabled us to overcome the challenges and create new ways to operate and sustain growth. We managed to see positive growth even during tough times.
We continuously learn from our journey. We leverage experiences and apply them for growth through the transformers, who are none other than our employees. Like water, as we grow year after year, we nurture all those who join the journey with us- employees, customers, community, and all. We discover new paths together to sustain and operate responsibly.
At HCLT, we are making way for tomorrow, today.
