Sunlabob teams up with CSR consulting firm eco:factum


In May 2010, Sunlabob entered into an exclusive partnership with eco:factum, a consulting firm advising companies in the renewable energy environment seeking for appropriate projects to fulfill their corporate responsibility commitment.

An effective commitment requires not always a lot of money, but it requires know-how, labor resources, time, suitable projects and the right partners. Therefore eco:factum and its network partners provide a wide range of services to its clients e.g. CSR-consulting, project-management, marketing and communication.

To put eco:factum´s clients corporate responsibility commitment into action the collaboration will focus on introducing Sunlabob's renewable energy solutions into poverty stricken remote areas in Laos. Both companies will leverage on each other's experience in CSR activities, and formulate socially responsible strategies that would benefit the poorest of the poor in Laos.

Once an appropriate CSR activity has been developed, Sunlabob will look after the activities' implementation process whereas eco:factum will announce this activity to its clients to ensure the necessary back up to bring it into action.

eco: factum encourage its clients to a long-term commitment, accompany them along the CSR value chain and removing any obstacles along the way.

Sunlabob is proud to pioneer a responsible business approach in the region. In Nov 2009, Sunlabob was invited to present its extensive range of RBC/CSR activities, particularly environmental and social responsibilities, at a conference in Bangkok entitled "Why Responsible Business Conduct Matters". The conference was organized by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) and its objective was to bring together key players from government, business and civil society from both Asian and OECD countries to exchange their perspectives, experiences and practices in implementing RBC/CSR activities.
