As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, JAC International, a member of JAC Recruitment Group, is taking part in an ongoing re-forestation project to work towards a greener earth. For each permanent placement made throughout our global network, we contribute a portion of our sales revenue to plant one tree, with the aim of planting 10,000 trees each year.
The plantation of JAC Recruitment Group is located within the Apeng Preservation forest in Sarawak State, Borneo Island, Malaysia, an area previously devastated by one of the highest rates of deforestation in the world. The planting will be coordinated by the Japan Malaysia Association (JMA) as part of their “Orang-utan Forest Fund” which targets the regeneration and preservation of Malaysian tropical rainforests and the native Orang-utans that call them home. Working with local communities, the project also teaches local people new techniques and skills in rainforest conservation to ensure continual regeneration of the rainforests.
Aside from this, we are developing re-forestation project in Bali, Indonesia where COP13 was held. We are planting 1 young tree in a rock face covered with volcanic ash, when our candidate gets a new position with a company through us. We will continue supporting this project hoping that each new tree will grow and establish itself as each of our candidates will grow in their new company.
As a global recruiter, JAC Recruitment Group wishes to contribute to and promote environmental preservation on a global scale. Deforestation is said to account for one fifth of global carbon emissions, making it the largest contributing factor. We believe tropical rainforest preservation is an essential first step in reversing the threat of climate change and working towards a cleaner earth.
Supporting the “Green Bali in 2010” project, JAC International assists planting in the desolated area of Kabupaten Kintamani, once an important water source. The rain-forest has been decreasing in Bali at a dramatic rate through both natural disaster and illegal deforestation and it is our aim to contribute to reversing this.
