EES - November 2014

November 2014

Community project

Lending a helping hand (15/10/2015)

Clean C, an NPO which organises a number of community upliftment projects for underprivileged people, recently challenged EES Africa (Pty) Ltd to a beach clean-up. EES, management, engineering and auditing services company, took up this challenge, and last week, under the guidance of Clean C, descended upon the Kalk Bay beach situated next to the harbour. After some very productive and worthwhile time spent there cleaning up litter, the beach looked shiny, fresh and clean! EES challenges other companies to do the same at beaches not far from where they are located in order to achieve sustainability which is part of the EES business approach.


Clean C believes in engaging with communities on different levels with a ‘generational’ approach to the many challenges faced in underprivileged communities. In addition to beach cleanups, its initiatives include crèche and orphanage makeovers, park upliftment projects, graffiti defacing, and youth leadership imbizos.

From My Pen

From quality management to community initiatives

EES Africa (Pty) Ltd is proud to be an ISO 9001:2008 company. The objective of this international standard is to guarantee that the company has in place an effective quality control procedure and will provide clients and associates with the best service possible.

 

We recently lauded the creation of Minister Siyabonga Cwele’s Department of Telecoms and Postal Services in order to derive more value out of the booming information and telecommunication industry. This is one of EES Africa’s critical operating sectors and we thus pay close attention to the highly anticipated IT charter which we expect to come into play in the very near future. More on this soon.  

 

EES’ people believe in applying our values not only to the world of business, but to the local communities in which we find ourselves. Clean C, a community upliftment NPO, recently challenged EES Africa (Pty) Ltd to a beach clean-up. Under the guidance of Clean C, an EES team descended upon the Kalk Bay beach situated next to the harbour. After some very productive and worthwhile time spent there cleaning up litter, the beach looked shiny, fresh and clean!

 

Another initiative was that of a golf sponsorship for a school fundraiser. EES was proud to sponsor the 18th hole at De Zalze Wine & Golf Estate in Stellenbosch and also enter a four ball team in support of the Rhenish Primary School Golf Event.

 

Both events contributed to team building and helped us help others. We challenge other companies to undertake similar projects in order to achieve sustainability and foster corporate citizenship.
