Infinitus launches the 5.20 Social Responsibility Day following two years of preparation

In 2017, Infinitus established the 5.20 Social Responsibility Day Initiative Committee in cooperation with the Corporate Citizen Committee of the China Association of Social Workers, SynTao, Ant Financial, Yili Group, Bayer China, FAW Group, L'Oreal China, Anta Group and Wang Lao Ji.

In 2018, Sammy Lee, CPPCC National Committee member and chairman of LKK Health Products Group (LKKHPG) proposed the establishment of a nationwide Social Responsibility Day that advocates that "the community is more important than an individual", in a move to enhance public awareness of social responsibility and further engagement in social responsibility by both companies and individuals.

This year, along with 5.20 Infinitus Social Responsibility Day, Infinitus released its 12th Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report, detailing the company's practices in fulfilling its social responsibilities in six areas: health, quality, employees, partners, environment and community, as part of its efforts to respond to the concerns and expectations of consumers and the wider society in a forthright and transparent manner.

Infinitus holds consumer experience event at manufacturing facilities to underline the company's commitment to quality and social responsibility

On the same day, a consumer experience event was concurrently held in Infinitus' Xinhui and Yingkou manufacturing facilities, at which consumers were invited to visit the facilities and witness the company's ongoing commitment to quality throughout the transparent manufacturing process. The field visit gave the visitors an opportunity to understand Infinitus' quality initiative whereby an error rate of 1% is considered to be a 100% failure. The visitors shared their feelings in real time during the live event.

"We find it easy for consumers to trace the origin of the raw materials that go into a product and learn about each of the planting and manufacturing processes by scanning the QR code, assuring them of the quality of products they purchase," said a visitor to the Xinhui facility. "We witnessed Infinitus' ongoing commitment to quality during the tour of the facility as we learned about the product testing procedures there as part of the company's strict process during the manufacturing of each bottle of oral liquid," noted a visitor to the Yingkou facility.

Attendees unveil the 5.20 Social Responsibility Day Manifesto in terms of social responsibility engagement

Public awareness of social responsibility needs to be raised with government guidance, industry promotion, corporate practices and social participation. The increase in the level of engagement in corporate social responsibility has played a crucial role in contributing to economic development, social stability and human well-being as the companies that make the products and provide the services that we consume are an important part of society as well as a key component of the ecosystem that makes up the overall market. For a business, it is their social responsibility to provide quality products and services, care for their employees, achieve a win-win situation with suppliers, create a harmonious environment and benefit the community.
