DB: 被评为卓越绿色企业，请问有什么感想要分享吗？ How do you feel about your company being awarded as Green Business Award?
I think it’s fantastic! It’s a humbling experience for a green award. It’s a fantastic recognition for the efforts that we do each day. We strive to make our business a force for good and if you look at the big names up on the screen, you’ll see that we are quite a low-profile company. There are only 5,000 of us in China and to get a recognition for the hard work we do each day is a great encouragement for the future.
DB: 越来越多的企业与组织都在关注绿色能源与可持续发展的议题。请问您认为贵公司能与之竞争的优势在哪里？ An increasing number of companies and organizations have paid attention to green energy and sustainability, what would be your companies’ strengths to compete with them?
First off, I’m very happy that there are more and more companies going green as I do believe that it is our responsibility as a business to have a good impact. It’s the only way to grow your business and make sure you have a positive impact. The things we do, we just try to do it a little bit better each day because we genuinely believe in this purpose. Although we are an energy company, we try to help our customers use less energy. If you think in the short term, this means we have less profits but at the same time, we create a sustainable company. We continue to look at our own operations and even when there’s no payback, I believe it’s the right thing to do. We try to be better each day and I’m very happy we get recognition for that, but I don’t think we can ever do enough. We will keep on moving.
DB: 请问未来贵公司还会与中国欧盟商会有怎样的合作，以便于更好地服务社会？ How will you continually cooperate with EU Chamber to contribute in Chinese society?
We’ve had quite a successful cooperation with the European Chamber for about two years now. We have become more active in different platforms and we would like to extend that. As a company, we would like to become more active in the energy work group but also, we’d like to talk to the Guangdong government about policies, about innovations and about cooperation. I think we are the largest Dutch company in the South of China and as the Netherlands is a country of innovation, we have a role to play. We are a company that takes responsibility, so we are looking to increase our efforts.
